FDA warns – select Culinaria Nut Mixes may contain undeclared almonds, other ingredients

Due to a labeling issue, St. Louis, Missouri-based Schnucks Markets, Inc., is warning consumers of possible undeclared almonds in its Culinaria Cashew & Macadamia Mix and of a possibly incorrect ingredient list printed on the label of its Cashew & Almond Mix.

The allergy alert, announced by the company on April 29, 2023, primarily concerns those with an allergy or serious sensitivity to almonds, as those vulnerable could suffer a major, possibly life-threatening allergic reaction upon consuming an affected product.

Customers who have purchased either product are instructed to check the item against those under the following UPCs, best-by dates, and lot codes as follows:

  • Culinaria Cashew & Macadamia Mix 9 oz.
    • UPC: 4131822428
    • Best-by date: 2/02/25
    • Lot code: 3033 A9
  • Culinaria Cashew & Almond Mix 9 oz.
    • UPC: 4131822423
    • Best-by date: 2/02/25
    • Lot code: 3033 A9

Photos of the product labeling can also be referenced in the FDA communication.

Anyone with an impacted product can return the item to their local Schnucks store to receive a total refund. Consumer questions can be directed to the company’s Customer Care team via (314) 994-4400 or (1-800) 264-4400.
