Jammy Sammy Strawberry Jam & Peanut Butter Snack Size Sandwich bars are being recalled by its maker, Nest Collective, said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. According to the food safety group, some of snack bars are individually wrapped with incorrect labels that do not warn the product contains peanuts, which can be a life-threatening allergen to consumers with severe food sensitivities.
The snacks were sold in packages of five bars which correctly identify the product as Jammy Sammy jam and peanut butter sandwiches. However, some of the individually wrapped bars identify the product as "Grammy Sammy Honey Graham and Strawberry Yogurt" and show the ingredient statement of that product.
While the the boxes and wrappers warn consumers that the products were produced at a facility that processes peanuts and other allergens, the Jammy Sammy product specifically contains organic peanuts and peanut butter. The FDA warns that consumers with allergies to peanut-based products should not eat the Jammy Sammy bars and return the snacks to the retailer for a full refund. Consumers should also seek immediate medical attention if they're experiencing any health issues after eating the mislabeled snacks.
