According to the USDA, people who are allergic to tree nuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening reactions if they consume the product.

The recalled products were made in the United States and were distributed nationwide, the USDA stated in its release. In addition to its availability in stores, the products were available on e-commerce websites, including www.thinkproducts.com.

The recalled products are sold in individual 1.76-ounce bowls with a UPC of 753656711836 or a case containing six individual bowls with a UPC Code of 753656712338, the USDA said. They all had “best by” dates of N15OCT21, N16OCT21, N19OCT21, N20OCT21, or N21OCT21 stamped on the bottom of the bowl.

To date, there have been no reports of illness associated with consumption of the product, the USDA stated. The recall was triggered after a consumer reported finding a piece of almond while eating the product.

An investigation determined that the problem was caused by an inadvertent error in the production process.

Consumers who have purchased the products should not eat them and may return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. For additional information, consumers may call 866-98THINK (866-988-4465) from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT.
