Pumpkin Cheesecake Pies Recalled Due to Mislabeling
Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market initiated a voluntary recall of its Pumpkin Cheesecake Pies due to improper labeling. Some of the pies were marked with labels for regular Pumpkin Pies and that failed to mention pecans as an ingredient. Pumpkin Cheesecake Pies that have proper labels are not affected by the recall.
Tree nut allergies, including pecans, are one of the more common food allergies next to peanut allergies. Tree nut allergies occur most commonly in children. Medical problems that occur with tree nut allergies include:
- Shortness of breath
Prevention, i.e. avoiding allergens, is the best treatment for allergies. People with allergies rely on proper labeling to avoid ingesting dangerous food products.
The mislabeled pies with an “Enjoy By” date of November 21st have been removed from all retail locations. Customers may return any unused product or empty product container for a refund from the company, which is trying to limit dangerous product liability.
