Girl Scouts of Santiam Council, in Oregon, voluntarily recalled thousands of cashew cans after small, spiral metal pieces were reported found mixed in with the cashews.
The cashews were sold in Benton, Linn, Lincoln, Marion, Polk and Yamhill counties, according to the director of program services for the Girl Scouts of the Santiam Council.
The council has received six reports of opened cans of cashews containing metal fragments mixed in with the cashews. Metal pieces were also found in several unsold cans that were being stored at the council office.
The recalled cashews were produced by Ashdon Farms and have date codes of 7268A9 or 7268B9 on the second line printed on the can bottom.
William Womack, director of quality assurance for Ashdon Farms, said 62,400 affected cashew cans were sent out to 12 Girl Scout councils through the United States.
Consumers that have any recalled cans of cashews should contact Ashdon Farms directly at 800-274-3666 for a replacement product.
