New American Food Products, LLC announces a voluntary recall the MILK CHOCOLATE VANILLA CARAMELS Premium Chocolate Treats flavor as follows:

  • Weigel’s® Mountain Valley™ with best by date of 11/14/17
  • Royal Farms Market Place with best by date of 12/08/17

The recall was initiated due to concerns of the possible presence of peanuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to specific types of allergen, such as peanuts, run the risk of serious life threatening allergic reactions if they consume the product being recalled.

While the product line is available in multiple flavors, the only product being recalled is the MILK CHOCOLATE VANILLA CARAMELS Premium Chocolate Treats flavor of Weigel’s® Mountain Valley™ and Royal Farms Market Place which are only sold in 2.75-ounce bags.

Although the packaging clearly states the product is packed in a facility where other products containing peanuts, tree nuts, milk, wheat, soy and eggs are packaged, out of an abundance of caution, New American Food Products, LLC is recalling all of the 2.75-ounce bags of the Weigel’s® Mountain Valley™ Premium Chocolate Treats MILK CHOCOLATE VANILLA CARAMELS with best by date of 11/14/17 and Royal Farms Premium Chocolate Treats MILK CHOCOLATE VANILLA CARAMELS with best by date of 12/08/17

We were made aware of the presence of the peanuts through a customer complaint. New American Food Products, LLC is not aware of any related illnesses at this time.

Although this is believed to be an extremely isolated incident, effective immediately, all Weigel’s® and Royal Farms retail locations have withdrawn this product from sale. This recall does not include any other flavor of Weigel’s® Mountain Valley™ Premium Chocolate Treats nor does it include any other flavor of Royal Farms Market Place Premium Chocolate Treats.

New American Food Products, LLC is asking that customers who purchased the affected product discard it immediately or return the product to the nearest Weigel’s® or Royal Farms retail location for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact the company Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm Eastern time at 978-682-1855.
