FDA warns – Great Value Honey Roasted Cashews 8.25 oz recalled due to undeclared milk, coconut

John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc (JBSS), of Elgin, Illinois, has recalled a limited quantity of its 8.25-ounce Great Value Honey Roasted Cashews because the product may contain traces of coconut and milk, two major allergens that do not appear on its ingredient list.

Individuals who live with an allergy or sensitivity to coconut and/or milk are strongly advised against consuming products under the impacted “best if used by” date to avoid the risk of a major, possibly life-threatening allergic reaction.

Initiated by Sanfilippo & Son, Inc (JBSS) on March 12, 2024, the voluntary recall covers products bearing the following details:

  • Great Value Honey Roasted Cashews
    • Best if used by: July 08 2025 (as printed on the underside of the 8.25-ounce plastic can with a blue wrap-around label)
    • Universal Product Code (UPC): 078742133348

Affected products were distributed and made available for purchase via Walmart.com and in a limited number of Walmart stores in 30 U.S. states: AL, AR, CA, CO, CT, FL, GA, HI, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MO, MS, NC, NE, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK, PA, SC, TN, TX, VT, WV.

Although the company has not been notified of any illnesses or adverse reactions in connection to the mislabeling, those who are in possession of a recalled product are asked to refrain from consuming it. The item should either be disposed of, or, for a refund, taken back to the nearest Walmart store.

Further questions may be directed to company representative John B. at 1-800-874-8734, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central Time. Emails can also be sent to info@jbssinc.com.
