Hostess Brands is voluntarily recalling 710,000 cases of  snack cakes and donuts due to the risk of peanut exposure. 

The Hostess Brands products subject to the recall were produced using the Grain Craft flour that has now been recalled and, as a result, these products may contain low levels of undeclared peanut residue.

More information about the Grain Craft recall can be found on the FDA’s website.

"While those who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume products containing peanut allergens, the amount of peanut exposure from use of the flours and affected products is considered to be low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers."
