FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - April 4, 2013 - BOSTON - Centerville Pie Company of Hyannis, MA is voluntarily recalling all clam pies because they contain undeclared fish (anchovies), which is an ingredient in the Worcestershire sauce used in the clam pie recipe. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to anchovies may run the risk of an allergic reaction if they consume these clam pies.

Affected pies come in both one and two-pound sizes and are vacuum sealed with a circular "Centerville Pie" label. The clam pies were distributed through their retail location in Centerville, MA and at various wholesale locations in the Cape Cod, Massachusetts area.

No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date.

The voluntary recall was initiated after it was discovered that the labels on the clam pies did not reveal the presence of fish (anchovies) as an ingredient in Worcestershire sauce used in the clam pie recipe. Labels have now been corrected to reflect the allergen, fish (anchovies).

Consumers who have purchased a Centerville Pie clam pie and have an allergy or severe sensitivity to fish are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (774)470-1406 Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
