Ritz voluntarily recalls mislabeled cracker sandwiches


Ritz recently announced a voluntary recall of family size packages of its cheese cracker sandwiches because of mislabeling.

“This recall is being conducted because the outer packaging indicates that the product is Cheese variety, while the individually-wrapped product contained in the package is Peanut Butter variety,” according to a company statement from Mondelez Global.

Despite being mislabeled, the outer carton contains an allergen advisory statement indicating the product “May contain peanuts.”

This voluntary recall is limited to the RITZ Cheese Cracker Sandwiches Family Size (21.6-ounce carton) product with “Best When Used By Dates” of:

-- 18SEP20

-- 20SEP20

-- 28SEP20

-- 29SEP20

-- 30SEP20

-- 01OCT20

-- 02OCT20

The packages contain 16 individually wrapped six-cracker sandwiches, and each one weighs 1.35 ounces.

There have been no reports of injury or illness. Consumers can contact Mondelez Global, which owns Ritz, at 844-366-1171.
