Ding Dongs

Ding Dong devourers, Hostess’ recall bell tolls for thee. Twinkie and Ho Ho people? You’re clear. Go back to munching.

Hostess announced a recall of 710,000 cases of snack cakes and doughnuts Friday after its flour supplier, Grain Craft, recalled some of its flour. The baking necessity had “undeclared peanut residue,” according to Hostess. Hostess acknowledges there might be some danger to those with extreme peanut allergies, but claims it knows of only two cases of peanut allergy reaction related to the products in the recall.

Types of junk food affected: Ding Dongs, Zingers, Chocodiles, Chocolate Donuts, Crunch Donuts, Devils Food Donuts, Glazed Mini Donuts, Powder Donuts. The batch codes, listed here, can be found on the packaging below the “best if used by” date. Peanut allergic snackers are “encouraged” to return the product to the place at which it was bought for a refund. Information for replacement product coupons can be left here.
