FINDLAY, Ohio — Wolfies Roasted Nut Co. in Findlay has issued a voluntary recall of its Cheddar & Jalapeno Artisan Nuts due to an undeclared milk allergen and undeclared artificial color.
The company says the ingredient label did not list cheese, which contains a milk allergen. The label also failed to list the artificial color additives FD&C Yellow No. 5 and Yellow No. 6, which can also result in an allergic-type reaction for certain people.
