For Immediate Release
February 14, 2017
Legendary Baking of Denver, CO, has expanded its recall of 34 ounce packages of Private Selection Salted Caramel Chocolate Almond Pie because the almonds and eggs were not listed in the ingredient statement. People who have allergies to almonds and eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled Private Selection Salted Caramel Chocolate Almond Pies were distributed in Kroger, Fry’s, and Smith’s retail stores in the following states: AL, AZ, GA, IL, IN, KY, MI, NM, OH, SC, TN, and WV. Legendary Baking has expanded this recall because the product also went to Fred Meyer, King Soopers, and City Market retail stores in the following states: CO, ID, NM, OR, UT, WA, and WY.
The product comes in a 34 ounce, clear plastic package dome with a black plastic bottom base and is marked with lot # CH17025 on the side of the clear plastic dome.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered by the manufacturing facility that the almond and egg-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not have the correct product ingredient statement and allergen declaration. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary error in the packaging processes.
Consumers who have purchased 34 ounce packages of Private Selection Salted Caramel Chocolate Almond Pie are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund should they have allergen issues. Consumers with additional questions and concerns may contact Legendary Baking at 1-844-617-8238 Monday-Friday 8a-5pm CST.
