FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — December 29, 2014 — BUDA, TX — Jardine Foods, Inc. is voluntarily recalling Chili Mix products because they may contain undeclared peanut proteins.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
