Check your cabinets for Hostess products if you have any sort of peanut allergy.

Hostess Brands, LLC is voluntarily recalling 710,000 cases of select snack cakes and donuts over concerns that they may contain low levels of "undeclared peanut residue".

This is a direct result of the Grain Craft flour recall. Hostess says these bakery items were produced with that flour.

The Hostess Brands products affected by the recall include single serve (snack cakes and donuts), multipack boxes and bagged donuts including Ding Dongs, Zingers, chocolate donuts.

Here is the full list of products impacted.

The baked goods were sold to mass merchandisers, grocery stores, distributors, dollar stores, drug stores, and convenience stores throughout the United States and Mexico.

Anyone who has purchased an affected product and who has a sensitivity or allergy to peanuts is encouraged to discard it or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

The good news: the FDA reports 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.  

To date, Hostess has received notice of two allergic reactions related to the product covered by this recall.  

The recall was issued out of an abundance of caution.
