Whole Foods Recalls Raisin Bran Due to Peanut Allergy Concern
The boxes contain an entirely different cereal product.
If you’ve recently purchased Raisin Bran from Whole Foods, you might be in for a surprise. On Friday, Oct. 6, the brand voluntarily recalled their 365 Everyday Value Organic Raisin Bran because the boxes contain an entirely different cereal altogether: Peanut Butter Cocoa Balls.
That’s right—there’s not a hint of Raisin Bran inside those boxes. The biggest concern with the slip-up is that the Cocoa Balls contain peanuts, an ingredient not listed on the Raisin Bran box. Specifically, the cereal being recalled was packaged in 15-ounce boxes, has a UPC code of 9948243903, and a Best By date of June 4, 2018.
The cereal was sold in Whole Foods Market stores nationwide and at amazon.com, but has since been removed from both. Customers who purchased this product can bring a valid receipt into stores for a full refund.

Whole Foods isn’t a stranger to recalls. In July, the company issued a recall of their buffalo chicken salad after discovering it contained tuna. And in March, the company pulled Vulto cheeses from their stores due to a Listeria concern.
