The more than two dozen recalled products were sold under seven brand names and distributed to retailers including 7-Eleven, Walmart and Stop & Shop. 

Walmart and Stop & Shop also issued separate warnings on their websites in order to better warn their shoppers.

Although there have been no reports of any illnesses related to the recalled products, the company said it's taking "action out of an abundance of caution."
