not declared on the label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to pecans run the risk a
serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

labeled with Best Before dates of 01MAY23 and 01JUN23 and UPC of 077260096937 with Lot
The lot code and best before date can be
found on the back of the product packaging, below the UPC.
The recall was initiated following consumer contacts regarding the wrong product inside the outer
packaging for Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups product. Russell Stover has received no reports of
any illness or allergic reactions related to this issue to date.
The Issue Resulting in the Recall
An error by the firm’s 3rd party co-packing company resulted in individually-wrapped Sugar Free
Pecan Delight products being placed in the outer packaging for Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups. The
inner packaging correctly identifies the products as Sugar Free Pecan Delights and the physical
Sugar Free Pecan Delight product appears distinct from the Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cup product.
