2015 MagNut Sale!
***MagNut Fall Sale Product Recall (2015)***
The Honey Mustard Pretzel Mix sold through Ashdon Farms is being recalled because “milk” was not included on the label as an ingredient. People with an allergy to milk should not consume this product. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
As of November 15, 2015 Ashdon Farms is currently reprinting labels to correct this omission. Affected packages can be identified by the “contains” statement found immediately below the ingredient listing. The contains statement on incorrect labels reads “Contains: Cashews, Almonds, Soy, Wheat.” Packages with the correct label read “Contains: Cashews, Almonds, Soy, Wheat, Milk.”
There have been no reports of illness or injury associated with this product.
Milk allergic consumers who have purchased the product may contact Ashdon Farms at 800-274-3666 for substitution with a non-milk containing product.

If your troop participated in the 2015 MagNut sale, we ask that you share this information with Girl Scouts in your troop and have them to share with their customers who purchased the Honey Mustard Pretzel Mix.
Thank you for your assistance!
The GSNMT Product Sales Team
Each fall, thousands of our Girl Scouts participate in the MagNut Program.
This program helps girls set and achieve goals at the beginning of the Girl Scout year by selling magazines, photo keepsakes, nuts and candy. This sale comes at the perfect time of year, since all of the products sold through MagNut make fantastic stocking stuffers and holiday gifts for family, friends, teachers, neighbors and anyone else on your list!
Like the Cookie Program, the MagNut Program helps girls to develop Five Skills they’ll use throughout their lives: Goal setting, Decision making, Money management, People skills, and Business ethics.
Did you know: troop profits average 15%-20% of their total sales.
