Associated Press -

Hostess Brand snack cakes and donuts may have come in contact with peanut residue and there's no indication of it on the product packaging. That's why the company is recalled 710,000 cases of different snack foods and donuts. The company says the recall is out of, quote, "an abundance of caution."

The effected products include single serve snack cakes and donuts, multipack boxes and bagged donuts, and brands including Ding Dongs and Zingers. These products were sold at grocery stores, dollar stores, drug stores and convenience stores across the U.S. and Mexico.

Hostess was specific in the recall alert saying the problem is with the flour used to make the products. That flour is what came into contact with peanut residue.
