Following a recall for Ocean Spray cranberry juice, because an allergen ingredient was erroneously added to the formula, Mondelez Global has recalled a limited quantity of Ritz Cheese Cracker Sandwiches because they also may contain an allergen.

Mondelez said the recalled Ritz crackers were labeled a cheese variety when in actuality, they were a peanut butter flavor, which could cause an allergic or life-threatening reaction in some people. The outside of the cracker package does say, “May contain peanuts,” and the inner package of the 16 1.35-ounce individually-wrapped six-cracker sandwiches declares peanuts as an ingredient.

The affected crackers include the Family Size 21.6-ounce package with a UPC number of 0 44000 03826 7 and best when used by dates of 18SEP20, 20SEP20, 28SEP20, 29SEP20, 30SEP20, 01OCT20, and 02OCT20 found on the left side of the carton.

The recalled crackers were sold at retail stores nationwide. Labels of the recalled Ritz crackers can be viewed here.

Consumers should discard the recalled crackers and contact Mondelez at 1-844-366-1171, 24 hours a day, for more information about the recall. Consumer relations specialists are available Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST.

Mondelez issued the recall after discovering the labeling error. The company is taking corrective actions to ensure the issue does not reoccur. Mondelez said, the recall only affects certain cracker products only sold in the U.S. No other products were part of the recall.

The company has not received any reports of injury or illness related to the recall. Mondelez said voluntarily recalled the crackers as a “precaution.”
