Gretchen’s Shoebox Express, a Seattle-based food packing company, is voluntarily recalling the Cheese & Fruit Bistro Box distributed at Starbucks locations in Washington state.

The bistro boxes being recalled, which have an “enjoy by date” of March 4, 2016 and earlier, may contain undeclared cashews, which could severely affect those with cashew allergies or severe sensitivities, Starbucks said in a news release.

Starbucks says the affected products were removed from stores as soon as it became aware of the issue. No incidents have been reported, the company says.

The recall came about after an ingredient supplier issued a recall for a specific lot of almonds, which may contain cashews.

Customers who bought the recalled bistro box and have an allergy to cashews can dispose of it or return it to a Starbucks location for a full refund.
