GLENDALE (CBS) — Nestle has announced a voluntary recall of certain Raisinets Fun Size bags that may contain undeclared peanuts.

The recall is for 10-ounce bags with a production code of 02015748/UPC number 2800010255.

A statement issued by Nestle said the company was issuing the recall out of an abundance of caution.

“People who have allergies or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products,” according to the statement.

The affected product was distributed only in the U.S. to Target, Shop Rite and Don Quixote retail stores, according to Nestle, which reported that three complaints have been received to date.

While the candy bags are labeled with a precautionary statement “made on equipment that also processes peanuts,” the product should not, but may contain some peanuts that are not declared on the label, according to the company.

No other Nestle products are impacted.

Consumers who are allergic to peanuts and who have purchased the recalled products should contact Nestle Consumer Services directly at 1-800-478-5670 for a full refund and should discard any remaining packages.
