Hundreds of Products Involved in Largest Allergy-Related Recall
Inquisitr has recently reported about the most widespread product recall related to food allergies. This was following the voluntary recall of Adams Flavors, Foods, and Ingredients on some of its spices and products, because a supplier informed the company that its cumin contained peanut proteins that had not been declared.

What started out as a small spice recall aimed at peanut allergy suffers is now being called the most “widespread series of allergy-related recalls” in allergy labeling history. The U.S. Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) went into effect in 2006, requiring all products to disclose potential allergens, such as peanuts, on product labels.
At the end of last year, Adams Flavors, Foods, and Ingredients issued a voluntary recall of some of its spices and products, because a supplier informed the company that its cumin contained peanut proteins that had not been declared. That same mishap now has been found to affect hundreds of products commonly found on grocers’ shelves nationwide.
According to Allergic Living, besides for the spices listed in the original recall, a variety of common products from hummus to seasoned meats are being pulled from the shelves due to the peanut allergy recalls. In fact, 350,000 pounds of beef, chicken, and pork products are included in the recalls over the cumin contaminated with peanut proteins.
