Publix Issues Local Recall for Cinnamon Raisin Bagels
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Miami, FL -- January 4, 2006 -- Publix Super Markets is issuing a voluntary recall on prepackaged Publix Cinnamon Raisin Bagels (4-pack) located at its stores in South Florida (Key West to Vero Beach). The product was inadvertently packaged with egg bagels, and the ingredient label for cinnamon raisin bagels does not declare eggs. Individuals who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to egg run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
"The packaging error was detected during a store inspection process," said Anne Hendricks manager of media and community relations. "As part of our commitment to food safety, we routinely inspect our product for quality. There have been no reported cases of illness. Customers who have purchased the product may return it to their store for a full refund or replacement. All cinnamon raisin bagels currently for sale are packaged correctly. Consumers with questions may contact Publix at 1-800-242-1227."
