Hostess Recalls Holiday White Peppermint Twinkies Due to Health Risks

Hostess Brands, LLC has voluntarily recalled its Holiday White Peppermint Hostess Twinkies because of a recall by Blommer Chocolate Company of the confectionary coating used on the product. The confectionary coating contains milk powder ingredients recalled by Valley Milk Products due to a concern of Salmonella contamination. No illnesses have been reported to date, and none of the confectionary coating sampled has tested positive for Salmonella. However, Hostess is initiating this voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution.

This recall applies only to the White Peppermint Hostess Twinkies (UPC 888109111571), which were only sold in multipack boxes (9 individually wrapped cakes in a box). This recall does not affect any other Hostess products. The products were sold to mass merchandisers, grocery stores, distributors, dollar and discount stores, and convenience stores throughout the U.S.

Consumers who have purchased the affected product are urged to discontinue consumption and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Got questions? Call 1-800-483-7253 Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CT.
