North Star Sweet & Salty Caramel Trail Mix Recalled For Undeclared Cashews

Flagstone Foods LLC is recalling certain North Star Sweet & Salty Caramel Trail Mix citing the possible presence of undeclared cashews, an allergen, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced in a statement.

The recall involves its 14-ounce, plastic stand-up resealable packages, marked with UPC Code 0- 80948-63064-4 and lot code # 05M04210 with an expiration date of 04/22/2021.

The affected packages were distributed in retail military exchanges across the nation.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the cashew-containing product was distributed in packaging that does not disclose the presence of cashews. The consumers who are allergic to cashews may get serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.

However, the Robersonville, NC- company has not received any reports of illnesses to date related to the recalled product.

Consumers are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

In similar incidents, Fresh Express last week recalled a limited quantity of Southwest Chopped Kit, citing the presence of undeclared undeclared wheat, soy, cashews, and coconut.

Nestle USA, a division of Swiss food major Nestlé, in early June recalled certain Lean Cuisine Fettuccini Alfredo products for the presence of undeclared soy, a known allergen.

Starbucks is adding plant-based meat to its U.S. menu for the first time.

The Seattle-based coffee chain said Tuesday that a breakfast sandwich made with imitation sausage from Redwood City, California-based Impossible Foods is now available at a majority of its U.S. restaurants. The sandwich comes with egg and cheese and is served on a ciabatta bun.


Starbucks said earlier this year that it would add fake meat to its menus worldwide as part of an effort to reduce its environmental impact. The company has sold plant-based milk alternatives, such as soy milk and oat milk, in the U.S. and elsewhere. But the sausage is its first plant-based food item in the U.S.


In April, it began selling lasagna, pasta and wraps made with Beyond Meat crumbles in China. It also introduced a Beyond Meat breakfast sandwich in Canada in February. Beyond Meat, which is based in El Segundo, California, is Impossible Foods' chief competitor.


Asked why it went with an Impossible Foods sausage for the U.S. over one from Beyond Meat, Starbucks said it works with a variety of suppliers around the globe.
