Hostess Brands, LLC is issuing an allergen notice to alert consumers

formulations changes. Consumers should read the package label prior to
purchase and consumption of any Hostess® product," said Andy Jacobs,
Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Hostess Brands,
LLC. "We are committed to allergen management and care deeply about
producing snack cakes that are both safe and indulgence-worthy."
