Allergy danger: Hostess recalls chocolate chip muffins

Hostess recallHostess Brands Inc. is recalling certain Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins multipack boxes sold in stores nationwide because Banana Nut Mini Muffins were put in the packages by mistake and could put those with allergies in jeopardy, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

No other Hostess products are in the recall. The packages are stamped "Best By: OCT 31 $7.98/lb $3.99" and printed below that is 62 259, a capital letter, a time stamp and then 1029,

Consumers can take the muffins back to where they bought them for a refund or call Hostess for a refund coupon at (800) 483-7253, weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
