King’s Hawaiian is voluntarily recalling its Pretzel Slider Buns, Pretzel Hamburger Buns and Pretzel Bites products after the recall of an ingredient used in its pretzel products from one of its suppliers, Lyons Magnus.
Lyons Magnus is recalling the ingredient due to the potential for microbial contamination from organisms Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum. No illnesses associated with the products have been reported and no pathogens have been found in the products so far, but the company is doing as such “to ensure consumer safety”, it said.
No other products use this ingredient from Lyons Magnus, and King’s Hawaiian will resume producing pretzel products once the company has ensured all current product has been disposed of and has confirmed the safety of all ingredients.
Consumers in possession of any Pretzel Slider Buns, Pretzel Hamburger Buns or Pretzel Bites are advised to dispose of the product and can contact King’s Hawaiian to request replacement product.
