Gretchen’s Shoebox Express, a food packing establishment in Seattle, is voluntarily issuing a recall of the Cheese & Fruit Bistro Box (Item #11015085) with an “enjoy by date” of March 4, 2016 and earlier because the product may contain an undeclared tree nut allergen (cashews).
The Cheese & Fruit Bistro Boxes involved were distributed to Starbucks retail locations in Washington State. No other products or “Enjoy By” dates are impacted by this recall. Starbucks removed the impacted product from stores as soon as it became aware of the issue.
The recall is being conducted because an ingredient supplier issued a recall for a specific lot of almonds used to construct the bistro boxes. The almonds may contain cashews. Customers that do not have an allergy to cashews can safely consume the product.
