Maya Overseas Food Inc. of 48-85, Maspeth Ave., Maspeth, NY 11378, is recalling its 7 ounce packages of “Cumin Powder” because they may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have allergies to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled “Cumin Powder” were distributed NY, CT, NJ, MA, PA and VA in retail stores. The product comes in a 7 ounce, clear plastic package and is un-coded.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the peanut-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts. Subsequent investigation indicated the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s production and packaging processes. Production of the product has been suspended until the company is certain that the problem has been corrected.
