Marina's German Bakery Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Almonds, Walnuts, and Hazelnuts in Pastry Products


Michael Groemling

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - November 20, 2013 - Marina's German Bakery of El Paso, Texas is recalling two-count packages of pastry products, because they may contain undeclared Almonds, Walnuts, or Hazelnuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to Almonds, Walnuts, or Hazelnuts run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The two count packages of Assorted Pastries were distributed in El Paso,Texas at Fort Bliss Commissary and in Alamogordo, New Mexico at Holloman AFB Commissary.

The product comes in an assorted two count, clear plastic package, labeled MARINA'S GERMAN BAKERY ASSORTED PASTRIES, marked with the UPC number 01080100301, and a sale by date prior to 11/23/13.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with these products.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered during an FDA inspection that the nut containing products were distributed in two count packaging that did not reveal the presence of Almonds, Walnuts, or Hazelnuts. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was not known to the distributor.

The distribution of these products has been suspended until proper labeling is obtained.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to return the package(s) to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 915-591-3737 Monday through Friday from 7 AM to 6 PM MST.
