Winn-Dixie Issues Voluntary Recall On Winn-Dixie Brand Italian Green Beans

Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., is voluntarily recalling Winn-Dixie Brand Italian Green Beans sold in the 14.5 oz can with a UPC code of 2114021236 and a best by date of Sept. 2014, due to a potential for in-shell peanuts mixed with the green beans. Individuals with an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.

The recall is being initiated out of an abundance of caution for guest safety, though the company has received no reports of illness associated with product consumption.

"We encourage guests with any concerns to return the product for a full refund, no questions asked," said Mary Kellmanson, Winn-Dixie's group vice president of marketing. "We are conducting a thorough investigation to determine the cause of the peanut contamination in order to prevent a similar incident from occurring in the future.”

Consumers with questions about the recalled product may contact the Winn-Dixie Guest Service Center toll free at 1.866.WINN-DIXIE (866.946.6349).
