According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Real Food has opted to recall more than 30 cases of their salad kit products after the kits were found to contain undeclared peanuts.

About the Real Food Salad Kit Recall

Real Foods of Seattle has issued a recall on peanut products in which peanuts were not declared as an ingredient. Specific products may be in form of sunflower seeds mixed with peanuts in salad kits such as the “Harvest Slaw Kit” and the “Broccoli Salad Kit”.

Consumers with severe sensitivity to peanuts or who have a peanut allergy run the risk of suffering a life-threatening reaction if the recalled products are consumed.

The FDA states 38 cases were delivered to various deli departments inside Haggen stores in the states of Oregon and Washington.
