FRAMINGHAM, Mass., July 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cumberland Farms announces a voluntary recall of its CARAMEL SEA SALT DELIGHTS flavor of Cumberland Farms Farmhouse Premium Chocolate Treats due to concerns of the possible presence of peanuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to specific types of allergen, such as peanuts, run the risk of serious life threatening allergic reactions if they consume the product being recalled.
While the product line is available in multiple flavors, the only product being recalled is the CARAMEL SEA SALT DELIGHTS flavor of Cumberland Farms Farmhouse Premium Chocolate Treats, which is only sold in 3-ounce bags. Although this is believed to be an extremely isolated incident, effective immediately, all Cumberland Farms retail locations have withdrawn this product from sale. This recall does not include any other flavor of Cumberland Farms Premium Chocolate Treats or Farmhouse Premium Chocolate Bars.
Although the packaging clearly states the product is packed in a facility where other products containing peanuts, tree nuts, milk, wheat, soy and eggs are packaged, out of an abundance of caution, Cumberland Farms is recalling all of the three-ounce bags of the Cumberland Farms Farmhouse Premium Chocolate Treats CARAMEL SEA SALT DELIGHTS.
We were made aware of the presence of the peanuts through two customer complaints. Cumberland Farms is not aware of any related illnesses at this time.
Cumberland Farms is asking that customers who purchased the affected product discard it immediately or return the product to the nearest Cumberland Farms retail location for a full refund.
Consumers with questions may contact the company Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Eastern time at 508-270-1400.
