The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently instructed DSD Merchandisers, Inc. to recall all “10oz. Roasted/Salted Deluxe Mixed Nuts” products because their packaging doesn’t say they contain peanuts. The mixed nuts products were distributed to Northern California, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.
Peanut Allergy Health Concerns
Food allergies are a major concern for parents, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and nut allergies tend to the be the most dangerous and life-threatening food allergies. People who suffer from nut allergies may experience symptoms like:
- Anaphylaxis (narrowing of airways preventing someone from breathing)
These symptoms can appear almost immediately, depending on the severity of a person’s allergies, and symptoms such as anaphylaxis can be life threatening if not treated immediately.

Consumers who think they may have come into contact with mislabeled food packages containing nuts should contact the manufacturer to check on any outstanding recalls.
