Recall Issued for Certain Packages of RITZ Crackers Over Mislabeling Concerns

— May 3, 2020

Mondelēz Global LLC is recalling certain family-sized packs of RITZ crackers that may be mislabeled.

Are you a fan of Ritz crackers? If so, this recall notice is for you. Earlier this week, Mondelēz Global LLC issued a voluntary recall of a limited quantity of RITZ Cheese Cracker Sandwiches Family Size (21.6 oz. carton). Why? Well, it turns out that in certain lots, the containers are mislabeled and are filled with peanut butter sandwich crackers instead of cheese sandwich crackers. This is a big deal because many people are allergic to peanut butter. In fact, people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts “may risk serious or life-threatening allergic reactions by consuming the product.”
