Giant US food company Kraft Foods has recalled some Jell-O brand instant pudding because it may contain undeclared pistachio nuts.
The products affected are 1.4 oz. Jell-O Brand sugar free fat free reduced calorie instant pudding and pie filling in white chocolate with the 05 MAR 07 D8 and 06 MAR 07 D8 code dates, chocolate with the 06 MAR 07 D8 code date and chocolate fudge with the 07 MAR 07 D8 code date.
“People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to pistachio nuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume these recalled products,” it said. “No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date. The product was distributed nationally.”
No other Jell-O products are part of the recall, and there is no health risk for consumers who are not allergic to pistachio nuts.
Kraft estimates that approximately 148,500 packages of the recalled product were produced. The company learned of the error when it found that some of the boxes still under its control contained pistachio nuts. The company has taken steps to prevent a recurrence. No other Jell-O products are part of the recall.
