Breaded calamari rings are being recalled because the breading could have been cross contaminated with peanut products, causing a serious allergen risk.
King & Prince Seafood of Brunswick, Ga., is recalling its Breaded Calamari Rings because the soy flour could have been contaminated during the manufacturing process. Because peanuts are not listed as an ingredient, eating the food could cause a severe allergic reaction, including death, among peanut allergen sufferers.
