Cashews Recalled in Multiple States Due to Potential Presence of Glass Pieces
SunTree Snack Foods has issued a voluntary recall of various products containing cashews that were sold under the Happy Belly, Prince & Spring, Harris Teeter and HEB brand names. The recall was initiated after the company was notified by a customer that their product reportedly contained glass pieces. According to a statement published on the FDA's website, the company believes that "the source of glass is cashews that were an ingredient common to the products subject to this recall."
The following products are being recalled:
