Recall Alert: Rold Gold Pretzels May Contain Peanut Residue
Check your Rold Gold pretzel snacks to see if they are part of the voluntary recall of product that may contain peanut residue not identified on the label.
Time to head back into your cupboards and do a little investigating because there's been another big product recall, guys!
This time it's for pretzels—a pretty major staple in our house. Frito-Lay has issued a voluntary recall of select Rold Gold Tiny Twists, Rold Gold Thins, Rold Gold Sticks, and Rold Gold Honey Wheat Braided because they may contain peanut residue not identified on the label.
Here's what you need to know: The recalled pretzels were sold nationwide in stores, by food service suppliers, and in vending machines, and they have guaranteed fresh dates ranging from June 28, 2016, to August 23, 2016, on the front of the package. Directly underneath the date is a 9-digit manufacturing code that includes the numbers "32" in the second and third position—meaning, it looks like this: x32xxxxxx.
Be on the lookout for the following products with the above-described guaranteed fresh dates and manufacturing codes (though, keep in mind that products that do not include 32 in the second and third positions are not effected by the recall):
- Rold Gold Tiny Twists - 1 oz. , 2 oz., 16 oz. and 20½ oz.
- Rold Gold Thins - 4 oz. and 16 oz.
- Rold Gold Sticks - 16 oz.
- Rold Gold Honey Wheat Braided - 10 oz.
Be sure to check any of the manufacturer's multipacks you may have in the house for the Rold Gold Tiny Twists in them, too, as they are included in the following groups of products:
- 20 count Baked & Popped Mix with use by dates of from May 31 - July 26, 2016
- 20 count SunChips & Rold Gold Mix -with use by dates of June 14 - August 9, 2016

All use-by dates will be on the front of the package, with the 11-digit manufacturing code underneath. All impacted products will include the letter combination AM, TO, QH, QC, or SW in the second and third position (xAMxxxxxxxx, for example).
