Yogurt and Granola Parfaits Sold at Starbucks Being Recalled

Yogurt and granola parfaits sold at more than 250 Starbucks stores in the northeast have been recalled over almonds not listed on the packaging, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

The recall affects 6.1-ounce cups of Evolution Fresh Nonfat Greek Yogurt with Strawberry and Granola. Because almonds were not listed on the packaging, the FDA issued an "allergy alert".

The product, distributed by Rhode Island-based Greencore, USA Inc., is marked with UPC 762111074744 and a best-by date of Sept. 24, according to the FDA.

Affected parfaits were produced Sept. 21 and distributed to 266 Starbucks stores in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York and Maine.

There have been no reports of illnesses associated with the parfaits, which have been pulled from stores, according to the FDA.

Customers can bring back affected, uneaten parfaits to the stores where they bought them for a full refund.

"Greencore, USA, Inc. takes food safety and the protection of customers and consumers very seriously. It has robust traceability systems and took immediate action, working with our customer, on being informed of the potential problem," the company said in a statement posted on the FDA website.
