On March 26, 2009 Awrey was notified by one of its suppliers that peanut pieces provided to Awrey 's during the period of January to May 2008 had been sourced from the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) Plainview, Texas facility. Although Awrey has no evidence that there is a safety issue with these products, it is taking this action out of an abundance of caution because the PCA facility is the subject of an investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concerning a recent salmonella outbreak.
These products were distributed nationwide to foodservice distributors and supermarkets and sold to consumers through Awrey Outlet Store.
Awrey Bakeries, LLC requests that customers check the lot numbers of any of the above-listed products they have purchased. The lot number can be found on the side of the case. If customers find that they have these products in their possession marked with any of the lot numbers listed below, they are asked not to consume the products. Customers seeking a replacement or refund for recalled products should return affected product to the distributor or store where it was purchased for a full refund.
