Hostess Brands, LLC (“Hostess”) is voluntarily recalling some of their beloved Twinkies.

The company is pulling its Holiday White Peppermint Hostess® Twinkies® from the shelves because of a recall by Blommer Chocolate Company. The coating used contains milk powder ingredients that have been of concern for Salmonella contamination.

To date, no illnesses have been reported but Hostess is voluntarily recalling the goodies ou of an abundance of caution.

This recall applies only to the White Peppermint Hostess Twinkies (UPC 888109111571), which were only sold in multipack boxes (9 individually wrapped cakes in a box, as pictured above). The products were sold to mass merchandisers, grocery stores, distributors, dollar and discount stores, and convenience stores throughout the United States.

No other Hostess products are currently being recalled.

Consumers who have purchased the affected product are urged to discontinue consumption and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Salmonella can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting or abdominal pain. The bacteria causes more problems for children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

Consumers with questions may contact 1-800-483-7253 Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Central time.
