(WOIO) -

According to the FDA, Candy Place Chocolate Santas packages were voluntarily recalled by Giant Eagle due to an undeclared peanut allergen. While the individual peanut butter filled candies reference "peanut butter", peanuts are not listed as an ingredient on the primary package label, creating the potential for a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if consumed by those with a peanut allergy. The product is safe for consumption by those who do not have a peanut allergy.

The affected product was sold in 11-ounce packages with the UPC code 3003407341, and included chocolate, caramel and peanut butter varieties of chocolate candy. The product was purchased by approximately 1,100 customers in Giant Eagle supermarkets in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Maryland since October 1.

No illnesses have been reported to date. Consumers may return affected product to any Giant Eagle supermarket location for a full refund. Those with questions may call George J. Howe Company, the manufacturer, at 1-800-367-4693 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.  Monday through Friday.
