FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Lakeland, FL -- April. 23, 2004 -- Publix Super Markets Inc. is voluntarily recalling Publix Bakery Glazed Almond One Half Crème Cake, Net Wt. 20 oz.

Some packages of Publix Bakery Glazed Almond One Half Crème Cakes may be mislabeled as Glazed Raspberry Swirl Crème Cake. This product may contain undeclared almonds due to improper labeling. Individuals who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to almonds run the risk of a serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. These products may have been distributed to Publix stores in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, and sold between March 27, 2004 and April 22, 2004.

Publix Spokesman Lee Brunson said, "Although the almonds are clearly visible on the top of the cake through the clear clam shell package, as a precaution we are recalling the product from all our stores."

The company has received no customer complaints regarding this product.

"We apologize for any inconvenience to our customers, and will gladly offer a refund or replacement to customers who wish to return the product to their local Publix," said Brunson. "We are working very closely with the Food and Drug Administration and our manufacturing facility to resolve this situation with accuracy and expedience."

Customers with questions may contact Publix at 1-800-242-1227.
