Due to a possible risk for allergy sufferers, the “Organic Peanut Butter Creamy/Crunchy” sold by Penny and Rewe in a 250g jar is being recalled. It cannot be ruled out that jars contain undeclared cashews and/or almonds, said the manufacturer HMF Food Production on Tuesday via the foodwarning.de portal. The distributors Penny and Rewe also informed about the recall on their websites.
