A packaging malfunction led a food distributor to recall almonds due to the potential risk of a life-threatening food allergy that could affect some individuals. 

Kanan Enterprises, a food manufacturer, announced its intentions to recall all 14 oz bags of Southern Grove Unsalted Almonds "due to the presence of wheat and soy that are not listed as ingredients," according to the Food & Drug Administration's recall listing. The almond brand is the only product affected by the recall, the company said.

"People who have an allergy to wheat or soy run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products," Kanan Enterprises said in a statement. "No adverse reactions have been reported associated with this recall."

"We were notified by our customer that wasabi almonds were packaged in a bag of Southern Grove Unsalted Almonds. Consumers with this reported product should not consume this product," the company added. 

Southern Grove Unsalted Almond's were primarily sold at Aldi stores. The almonds were distributed at Aldi locations in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and West Virginia.

Aldi, however, intends to fully cooperate with Kanan Enterprises amid the recall announcement.

"In cooperation with Kanan Enterprises, and out of an abundance of caution, ALDI has voluntarily recalled Southern Grove Unsalted Almonds," Aldi said in a statement. "As a result of a packaging error, a limited number of Southern Grove Wasabi Soy Flavored Almonds may have been included in packages labeled Southern Grove Unsalted Almonds."

Aldi claimed to have immediately pulled all affected products from its stores. 

In recent months, recall announcements have been on the rise as Panera Bread's cream cheese and Fieldbrook Foods Corporation's ice cream bars was pulled from shelves due to listeria concerns. Announcements of this caliber, however, has expanded outside of the food realm as Mitsubishi and Toyota have confirmed recalls on particular vehicle models.
