Pepsi's Rold Gold Pretzels Recalled Due to Peanut Flour

08 Jun 2016 12:05 EDT Peanut Flour Prompts Pretzel, Cake Recall

Peanut residue detected in flour has prompted Frito-Lay and Hostess to recall some of their snack products. 

Frito-Lay, a subsidiary of PepsiCo (NYSE:PEP), this week issued a voluntary recall of several varieties of Rold Gold pretzels that can be found in stores and vending machines. The move follows Hostess's voluntary recall last week of 710,000 cases of snack cakes and doughnuts. The recalled products include Ding Dongs, Zingers and different flavors of snack doughnuts. Hostess is owned by HB Holdings, which is owned by Apollo Global Management (NYSE:APO).

The companies cite supplier Grain Craft's recall of a certain type of flour that included peanut residue. The Food and Drug Administration said Grain Craft only sells to other companies and not to consumers.

A list of other products recalled over the flour can be found on the FDA's website.
