Marquette, Mich. (WZMQ) – The U.S Food and Drug Administration has endorsed a recall on a candy sold nationally because of improper labeling.
The Cranberry Sweets company mislabeled their ‘mint melt-a-way’ candies which may contain undeclared peanuts.
According to the Company the packaged candies were distributed to retail stores in Oregon and Washington and sold nationally online dating back to september.
While the candies have not been confirmed to have reached the Upper Peninsula they have been sold online to Michigan.
With the holidays coming up and folks purchasing more food and sweet treats than they normally would, 19 News reached out to Super One Foods, a grocery store in Marquette, to see how they handle food recalls.
Store Manager Mike Lavigne says “When we do get a recall one of the first things we will do is remove those products, isolate them in the backroom. and make sure no customer has access to that, when we do get a recall we will return those products for a full refund.”
There are currently no products being recalled in the upper peninsula but it’s important to stay up to date on food and beverage recalls which can be found on the FDA’s website.
