Badia Spices, Inc. issued a voluntary recall on Badia brand ground cumin product. Peanut is an allergen that is not declared on the product's ingredient statement.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanut proteins run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. The product is packaged in plastic bottles.

The recall was initiated after the firm was notified that a ground cumin sample collected by New York Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Laboratory tested positive and had potentially been produced with undeclared peanut protein.

These products were distributed nationwide in the U.S. at both retail stores and through food service channels. Public health confirmed that Sheppard Air Force Base facilities do not carry these products for sale and no illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

The product was distributed nationwide in retail stores, commencing in July, 2014. The product is considered safe for consumers who do not have peanut allergen sensitivities. Consumers who have peanut allergen sensitivities are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 305-629-8000, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EST Monday through Friday, or via email to
