An Ohio Company is recalling 10 ounce stand-up pouches (SUPs) of cashews after it was determined that there could be peanuts present.
While peanuts and cashews are both allergens, they are not the same allergens. Thus this is an allergen issue and requires corrective action. There can be some cross-reactivity - people who are allergic to one can be allergic to the other.
Cross contact of peanuts and tree nuts can be an issue in facilities that handle both types of nuts.
