Nestle Recalls Candy Over Health Concerns

New York, Oct 26 (IANS) Nestle USA has announced the recall of a candy product that may contain "undeclared" peanuts over concerns that it may cause allergic reactions in some people, a media report said.

The recall involves the Raisinets Fun Size candy, Xinhua reported citing CBS.

"People who have allergies or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products," it said.

The affected product was distributed only in the US, according to Nestle, which reported that three complaints have been received to date.
