Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin is alerting consumers to the recall of a Publix brand pumpkin pie because it contains pecans that may not be listed on the label.
Publix Super Markets of Lakeland, Fla., is recalling certain batches of its Publix Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie because the ingredient statement on the label does not declare pecans, which are an ingredient in the pie.
The product was prepared at Publix stores for retail sale between November and December 2009 and has a UPC number of: 002-95118-20399-7. It is packaged in a 30-ounce plastic container.
The mislabeled pies were distributed in Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to pecans run the risk of allergic reaction if they consume this product.
Consumers who have purchased the product may return it to their local store for a full refund. Those with questions can contact the Publix Consumer Relations department at 1-800-242-1227 or visit www.publix.com/recall.
