FARGO, N.D.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Specialty Commodities, Inc. (SCI), of Fargo, N.D., a subsidiary of
Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM), is recalling a specific lot
of dry roasted almonds because they may contain undeclared cashews.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to cashews run the risk
of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these
The recalled dry roasted almonds were distributed to six customers in
Arizona, California and Colorado. They were shipped in 25 lb. cartons,
marked with lot #1050188-1-16007 on the side of the cardboard cartons.
The cartons were distributed to other food production companies for
further processing and packaging—they are not distributed directly to
consumers for sale in retail outlets. The recalled dry roasted almonds
were distributed between January 26, 2016 and February 16, 2016. No
illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the
cashew-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not
reveal the presence of cashews. Subsequent investigation indicates the
problem was caused by a temporary process irregularity that occurred at
the third-party contract manufacturer that processed and packaged the
almonds for SCI. The dry roasted almonds were inadvertently mixed with
cashews before being forwarded to impacted customers. Representatives of
SCI have notified these customers of the recall and provided return
Please direct any customer inquiries to 701-282-8222 between the
hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central Time Monday through Friday.
