Allergen Alert: Mispackaged Hostess Candy Mix

Krispak of Grand Rapids, MI is recalling 16 cases of GFS® Hostess Candy Mix in 8-48 oz packages due to a packaging error. A small number of cases of the Hostess Candy Mix were inadvertently put into GFS® Chocolate Sprinkles packages. 


The Hostess Candy Mix contains wheat and milk and may contain egg, none of which are declared on the Chocolate Sprinkles package.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk, eggs, and wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

No adverse reactions have been reported to date.

The recalled Hostess Candy Mix was distributed from April 5 through 19 to Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Tennessee Gordon Food Service Marketplace Stores.

Product is in a red, stand up GFS®, 48-oz. pouch that says Chocolate Sprinkles. The code date is embossed on the top of the pouch as 088 12.

Consumers who have purchased GFS® Hostess Mix by the case, or GFS® Chocolate Sprinkles should investigate their purchase.

Consumers who have the mis-packed product may return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
