Qld nuts recalled over incorrect labelling

A Brisbane wholesaler has pulled containers of pine nuts from supermarket shelves following a potentially deadly labelling error that saw the containers filled with peanuts instead.

Country Fresh Food Products said late on Friday it purchased plastic containers of pine nuts from an importer based in Victoria, to later discover the containers actually contained peanuts.

"I know how dangerous this could potentially be so we have moved swiftly to contact stores and attempted to remove all the products we have sold," the company's director Ali Kara said in a statement.

Anyone with 120 gram containers of Beta Wholesalers pine nuts is being urged to dispose of them, or return them to the place of purchase.
