Publix Super Markets has issued a voluntary recall for Publix Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie, which was mislabeled and could contain undeclared pecans. People with an allergy or severe sensitivity to pecans may suffer an allergic reaction if they eat the product.
Baked in-store for sale between November and December 2009, the pies have a UPC number of 002-95118-20399-7 and come in 30-ounce plastic containers. Pies affected by the recall were distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina.
“As part of our commitment to food safety and in cooperation with the FDA, we are issuing this voluntarily recall,” noted Publix director of media and community relations Maria Brous. “Since customers may still have these pies in their homes, we wanted to take every precaution to make them aware of the pecan as an ingredient. To date, there have been no reported cases of illness. Consumers who have purchased the product in question may return the product to their local store for a full refund. Publix customers with additional questions may call our Consumer Relations department at 1-800-242-1227 or by visiting our Web site at www.publix.com.”
Lakeland, Fla.-based Publix is privately owned and operated by its 140,500 employees, and has 1,014 stores in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee.
