Popular Snack Food Recalled Over Fears Of Contamination - Should You Be Worried?

April 27, 2018

A recall alert was issued on April 26, 2018, by Ethnic Foods Incorporated when fears that their food had been improperly labeled arose. The food in question contains a potentially dangerous allergen that could even cause some unlucky person their life.


Ethnic Foods Inc. is recalling their 19-ounce packages of Bhavnagri Snack Mix over fears that they may be contaminated by peanuts. The snack mix does not carry a label advertising the peanuts or mentioning the possible contamination, making it a dangerous mix.

If someone who is allergic to peanuts ingests the mix, they could potentially suffer a life-threatening allergic reaction. At this time, no reactions or illnesses have been traced back to the product.


The Bhavnagri mix in question has been distributed nationwide in multiple stores. The item comes in a clear 19-ounce packaging with a UPC code of 8085501 10206. The lot numbers associated with the mix up include 28517, 31917, 33817, 35317, 01118, 02318, 02918, 05118, and 07318.

The New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors performed a routine sampling of the product, and when it was analyzed by Food laboratory personnel, it was revealed that it contained peanuts.

This is a horrible story, and we know that sometimes we need a reminder of the good in the world at a time like this, so be sure to check out the video below!
