The following products are included in the recall:

  • Hostess donettes – Powdered Mini Donuts, 10.5 oz., UPC 88810915004 with a Batch code of D032121000

While those who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of experiencing a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume products containing peanut allergens, the amount of peanut exposure from use of the flours and affected products is considered to be low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers.

Symptoms of food allergies typically appear from within a few minutes to two hours after a person has eaten the food to which he or she is allergic. Allergic reactions can include: hives; flushed skin or rash; tingling or itchy sensation in the mouth; face, tongue or lip swelling; vomiting and/or diarrhea; abdominal cramps; coughing or wheezing; dizziness and/or lightheadedness; swelling of the throat and vocal cords; difficulty breathing; and loss of consciousness.

Customers who have purchased this product should discard any unused portions and bring their purchase receipt to any Giant for a full refund.

Consumers looking for additional information on the recall can call Hostess at 800-686-2813. Customers can also call Giant Customer Service at 1-888-814-4268 for more information. Customers can also visit the GIANT website.
