Krispy Kreme has urgently recalled a product from its summer range due to “undeclared” peanuts.

The popular brand known for its sweet treats has issued the recall for its White Chocolate & Raspberry Summer 4-pack of doughnuts because it contains peanuts which are not mentioned on the packaging label.

As a result of a packaging error, some packs have been incorrectly packed with two Reese’s doughnuts which contain peanuts, reports the Food Standards Authority (FSA).

This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone who is allergic to peanuts.

What Krispy Kreme product has been recalled due to containing peanuts?

What are product allergy recalls and withdrawals?

The FSA adds: Sometimes there will be a problem with a food product that means it should not be sold.

“Then it might be 'withdrawn' (taken off the shelves) or 'recalled' (when customers are asked to return the product).

“Sometimes foods have to be withdrawn or recalled if there is a risk to consumers because the allergy labelling is missing or incorrect or if there is any other food allergy risk.

“When there is a food allergy risk, the FSA will issue an Allergy Alert.”
