Russell Stover Chocolates is voluntarily recalling its sugar-free peanut butter cups in 2.4 oz packaging due to the potential for undeclared pecans.

The company is concerned that some packages may instead contain its Sugar Free Pecan Delights. 

The recall was issued after customers complained about the mix-up. The company blames the error on a third party co-packing company.
