Jelly Belly recalls mislabeled jelly beans with peanut ingredients

Jelly Belly recall The Jelly Belly Candy Co. is recalling about 6,000 "49 Flavors" jelly bean containers that contain peanut-butter-flavored jelly beans but don't list peanut butter or peanut flower as ingredients on the label.

The mislabeled candy was shipped Sept. 29 to independent candy stores across the country -- no major chain stores were involved, said Tomi Holt, a spokeswoman for the Fairfield, Calif., company.

The candy was sold in 7.5-ounce cylinder-style packages branded with the Jelly Belly logo and "49 Flavors," Holt said.

The tubes also had white stickers on the bottom that listed one of four product codes: 090925, 090928, 090929 or 091001, she said.

No incidents of allergic reactions from those with peanut allergies have been reported to the company, Holt said.

Consumers with questions about the recall are asked to call Jelly Belly at (800) 522-3267. The company will send customers who bought the recalled candy a new tube of jelly beans.
