Hostess is recalling more than 700,000 cases of its snack cakes and donuts because the products may contain peanut residue not listed in their ingredients.

The residue can sicken those allergic or highly sensitive to peanuts.

Hostess blames the residue on flour recently recalled by its supplier, Grain Craft.

Hostess brands affected by the recall include Ding Dongs, Zingers and Coco-diles.

The products affected include single serve (snack cakes and donuts), multipack boxes and bagged donuts.  The products were sold to mass merchandisers, grocery stores, distributors, dollar stores, drug stores, and convenience stores throughout the United States and Mexico.

The FDA says anyone with a peanut allergy or sensitivity who has an affected product should either throw it out or return it to the store where it was purchased.
