Original Recall for Raspberry Zingers Due to Mold Risk
July 22, 2020 — Hostess Brands voluntarily recalled certain Raspberry Zingers® snack cakes because they may get moldy before the expiration date in late August.
The recalled snacks have expiration dates between August 26 and August 29, 2020, with specific dates and UPC codes listed on the recall notice.
Hostess said the snacks were sold to mass merchandisers, grocery stores, distributors, dollar and discount stores, and convenience stores throughout the United States.
Raspberry Zingers are snack cakes that with a creamy non-dairy filling in the center. The cake is covered in shaved coconut and artificially-flavored raspberry syrup.
Hostess did not report any illnesses linked to the potential mold contamination. The company is asking customers not to eat the snacks and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
