American food manufacturer Hostess Brands LLC has issued two voluntary recalls this summer for a number of batches of its Raspberry Zingers because of concerns that mold may develop before the products’ best by date.

The company announced the first recall of 11 batches of Raspberry Zingers on July 20. Another voluntary recall was announced on August 25, including an additional 31 batches.

Impacted Raspberry Zingers products were sold to mass merchandisers, grocers, distributors, dollar and discount stores, and convenience stores in the US.

Hostess urged those in possession of the recalled products to return them at the place of purchase for a full refund.

Earlier this month, Powder & Bulk Solids reported that Hostess held a ribbon cutting event on June 15 to mark the opening of a new research and development lab in Lanexa, KS. About 20 researchers, product testers, and bakers will staff the Hostess Innovation Lab, creating new varieties of snack cakes. Product prototypes will be tested in custom-built sensory booths and the company will solicit feedback from consumers in a focus group room at the site.
