Company Announcement

Portland French Bakery of Portland, OR is recalling 26,635 units of Seattle Sourdough Pub Bun 6pk and 8,022 units of Franz Premium Pub Buns 12pk, because it may contain undeclared SOY. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

Products were distributed in Alaska, California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Utah through United States Bakery distribution systems between 6/24/18 and 7/17/18.

The Seattle Sourdough Pub Bun 6pk, net wt. 16 oz., can be identified by UPC 0-72220-10164-5 and the Franz Premium Pub Buns 12pk, net wt. 32 oz., can be identified by UPC 0-72220-70218-7. Both items are packed in a poly bag with a best before date between JUL- 03-18 and JUL-31-18.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

The labeling problem was discovered during a label and packaging review by firm. The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing soy was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of soy.

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. If a consumer has an allergy issue with SOY and have purchased the Seattle Sourdough Pub Bun 6pk and/or the Franz Premium Pub Buns 12pk, they are urged not to consume and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
