Tippin’s Gourmet Pies LLC has voluntarily recalled several lots of its key lime pies because they may contain flour with peanut residue, the Food and Drug Administration said.

Tippin’s said it conducted the recall of the popular product after its supplier, the Kellogg Company, recalled graham cracker crumbs used in the pies’ crusts because they may contain peanut residue.

No illnesses or allergic reactions to the pies have been reported, but Tippin’s said it was taking the action “out of an abundance of caution.”

The FDA said the pies were sold to distributors in Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona and Illinois.

Tippin’s, which is based in Kansas City, Kansas, said customers who bought the pies should return them to the stores where they bought them for a refund or throw them out.

Tippin’s officials could not immediately be reached for comment

The affected lot numbers are 04-26-16, 04-27-16, 05-03-16, 05-04-16, 05-17-16 and 05-31-16.
