B&G Foods announced Monday that it is voluntarily recalling 1,855 cases of a single date code of 6 oz.

Officials said the Back to Nature Cheddalicious Cheese-Flavored Crackers, with a “best by” date of SEP 05 2022, was pulled after learning that a limited number of the cracker boxes were inadvertently filled with foil-wrapped pouches of animal-shaped crackers, which contain egg and milk. These allergens are not declared on the box label.

Product Recall

Company officials said people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to egg or milk run the risk of severe or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume the animal-shaped crackers contained in the recalled boxes.

There is no health risk associated with this product for individuals without eggs or milk allergies.

This recall affects only 1,855 cases of the following product, which may have been distributed in retail stores nationwide:

This recall does not apply to any other “best by” dates, sizes, or varieties of Back to Nature products.

No allergic reactions related to this matter have been reported to date. This recall was initiated in cooperation with the FDA and the third-party co-packer that produced the product.

B&G Foods discovered this issue when it received a consumer complaint that a foil pouch within a single box of Back to Nature Cheddalicious Cheese-Flavored Crackers contained animal-shaped crackers.

The third-party co-packer that produces the product inadvertently filled a limited number of Back to Nature Cheddalicious Cheese-Flavored Crackers product boxes with another food company’s animal-shaped crackers.

Out of an abundance of caution, B&G Foods is recalling all 1,855 cases with this particular “best by” date. Product with this specific “best by” date was shipped and distributed to customer warehouses in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, Maine, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
