Alerted by the bakery that makes the bagels, the New Jersey-based food purveyor issued the massive recall to prevent potentially life-threatening allergic reactions. As of Friday, the company said no illnesses have been reported. 

The bagels in question include plain, cinnamon raisin, and everything bagels, as well as whole wheat, cinnamon raisin, and brown sugar mini bagels, and bear sell-by dates ranging from February 7 to February 12.

Deliveries were made to stores in the following 23 states: Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

If you purchased the bagels, you can return them to the store for a full refund. Pepperidge Farm says no other products have been affected by the recall.
