Holiday white peppermint Twinkies, Palmer Candy join recall over salmonella concerns
WASHINGTON -- Although Twinkies normally have a long shelf life, don't hoard any boxes of limited-edition Holiday White Peppermint Hostess Twinkies for post-holiday snacking or apocalypse preparation needs. Hostess has recalled the multipack boxes, with nine cakes in each, in response to a recall by Blommer Chocolate Co., which produced the confectionery coating used on the holiday Twinkies.
