Hostess Brands, LLC is voluntarily recalling 710,000 cases of certain snack cakes and donuts because they may contain “undeclared peanut residue,” the Food and Drug Administration announced Monday.

The recalled items have been sold nationwide, which include Ding Dongs, Zingers, Chocodiles and chocolate and powdered donuts.

Those who are allergic or have a severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume a product that contains peanut allergens. The FDA says Hostess is aware of only two allergic reactions related to the product covered by this recall.

This recall applies only to the products on this list.  The recall does not affect any other Hostess products.

The recall stems from a recall by Hostess’ supplier Grain Craft.
