Wesco Inc., a chain of 55 convenience stores based in Muskegon, Michigan, is recalling 750 units of Wesco Mint No-Bake Cookie Bites because the product may contain undeclared peanuts.

  • Wesco Inc. is No. 127 on CSP’s 2023 Top 202 ranking of convenience-store chains by store count.

The affected Wesco Mint No-Bake Cookie Bites were distributed to Wesco convenience stores throughout the lower peninsula of Michigan.

Wesco Mint No-Bake Cookie Bites (UPC 750308040474) are packaged in clear 9-ounce plastic cups. The following sell-thru dates that were affected include March 15-18.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The retailer initiated the recall after it discovered that Wesco Mint No-Bake Cookie Bites containing peanut butter were distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by incorrect product formulation within the manufacturing facility’s new software system.
