If you have peanut allergies, stay away from Raisinets! On October 22, 2010 Nestle Corp voluntarily recalled a batch of Raisinets that may contain peanuts even though the label says it does not contain peanuts. The tainted Raisinets were distributed to Target, Shot Rite and Don Quixote stores. The Food and Drug Administration issued a press release on this issue and it can be seen if you click here.
Nestle has indicated that any purchaser of the tainted Raisinets candy can call 800-478-5670 for a full refund. The tainted Raisinets are in the 10 ounce fun bags.
If you or someone you love is injured as a result of consuming a tainted food product, you may have a legal claim for product liability, breach of warranty and/or for a violation of state consumer protection laws. In these kinds of legal cases, it is very important to save the tainted product so that proper testing can be done to prove that it was in fact tainted (dangerous) and that it in fact caused the injury complained of.
