Concerns about nut allergies are prompting the recall of an Ortega taco seasoning mix.

B & G Foods said it is recalling Ortega Taco Seasoning Mix, Ortega Taco Sauce, Ortega Enchilada Sauce and Ortega Taco Kit products and certain Las Palmas Taco Seasoning Mix and Las Palmas Taco Sauce products distributed nation wide.

According to the company, one or more of the spice ingredients in the mixes was purchased from a third party supplier and may contain peanuts and almonds. Those allergic to peanuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction.

The recall does not apply to any other sizes or varieties of Ortega Seasoning Mix or to any Ortega Seasoning Mixes in canisters.

Anyone who purchased the recalled products can return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Anyone with questions can contact the company’s recall hotline at 877-929-2576 or visit www.ortega.com/recall/ for additional information.
