LA CROSSE, Wis. -- Kwik Trip Inc. has issued a recall of its Kitchen Cravings Strawberry and Mixed Berry Parfaits. The convenience-store retailer has withdrawn the items after an outside supplier discovered an undeclared chocolate-covered nut in the granola mix.

The 8.25-ounce parfaits are a threat to consumers who are allergic to cashews or almonds. After learning of the possible contamination Nov. 27, Kwik Trip removed all the parfaits from its retail locations.

No customers have reported adverse reactions from the products. The parfaits were available in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa locations. They had a best sell-by date on or before Dec. 6.

The La Crosse, Wis.-based company urged customers who purchased the parfaits and are allergic to nuts to return the items for a full refund.

This is not the only recall operators have had to react to in recent weeks. Ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention dubbed all romaine unsafe for consumption due to an E. coli contamination. Authorities narrowed the scope of the warning to romaine sourced from the coastal areas of central and Northern California.

Kwik Trip is a family-owned convenience-store chain operating more than 600 locations in Wisconsin and Minnesota (under the Kwik Trip banner) and Iowa (under the Kwik Star banner). The chain ranked No. 13 in CSP’s 2018 Top 202 list of the largest c-store chains in the United States.
