Russell Stover Candy Recalled due to Packaging Mistake
Russell Stover became aware of the problem with the item after they were contacted by the consumer. There have been no reports of illness just reports of the inside product not matching the outer packaging.
According to the report, it appears a 3rd party co-packing company is responsible for the product miss match. Somehow they put the Sugar-Free Pecan Delight products into the outer packing of the Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cups.
