Publix issues recall of pumpkin pecan pie

Posted On Thu, December 31, 2009

A number of recalls involving nut products have forced consumers who may have their health insurance premiums affected by an allergic episode or illness to look closely at the packaging for the products they are about to buy.

On December 30 Publix Super Markets ordered a voluntary recall of their Publix Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie after discovering mislabeled containers that don’t mention "undeclared pecans" in its ingredients.

The pies in question were sold in November and December and primarily distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina.

The company went on to add that those with an allergy or severe sensitivity to pecans who unknowingly ingested them in a pie could risk a potentially life threatening allergic reaction

"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," said Maria Brous, Publix's director of media and community relations. "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."

The recall was one of many nut-related recall to occur in December. Nutty Guys issued a recall of both their Butter Toffee and Yogurt Covered Peanuts on December 31 after bugs were found in their packages, while Whole Foods and many other retailers issued recalls of raw hazelnuts that may contain salmonella.
