The products were manufactured in the same facility.
The Entenmann's products being recalled are in blue and white bags with the following dates which are printed on the top front of the bags:
May 11, 12, 15, 18, 19, 22, 25, 26, 29, 2011

The Bimbo products being recalled are in cellophane wrappers with the same dates which are printed in a circle in the upper right of the package.
The company announced the recall after it received complaints of the unpleasant odor and temporary illness. While the potential for serious health problems is low, some consumers are sensitive to the uncharacteristic off-smell and should not eat the recalled products because of possible temporary gastro-intestinal distress, including nausea and diarrhea.
All products with the above code dates are being removed from store shelves in the affected states. No other Entenmanns's or Bimbo products or other states are affected.
Consumers who have purchased the product can return the product to its place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-984-0989 at any time 24 hours a day.
