If you have a peanut allergy, you may want to hold off on opening that box of Ding Dongs. Hostess is recalling 710,000 cases of some of its products over undeclared peanut residue they might contain, CBS News reports. In addition to Ding Dongs, the items being recalled include Zingers, Chocodiles, and a number of different kinds of donuts; the FDA has a complete list including UPC and batch numbers. A Hostess supplier, Grain Craft, told the company it was recalling certain lots of flour due to undeclared peanut residue, and Hostess decided to recall its own products made with that flour "out of an abundance of caution," it says in a statement. Two allergic reactions have been reported so far related to the recalled products. (More Hostess stories.)
