Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Sugar Free Cherry Pies Recalled from Publix

In a nutshell: Some no sugar cherry pies have a soy ingredient that was not listed on the label. People allergic to soy could have an allergic reaction.

July 24, 2008 — Publix Super Markets is issuing a voluntary recall on three codes of No Sugar Added Cherry Pie with a sell-by-date of July 8 – July 27. UPC numbers for the affected product may be found on the back label below the Nutritional Facts panel:

Publix NSA 8inch Cherry Pie, UPC: 41415-65990
Publix NSA 1/2 Cherry Pie, UPC: 03000-00225
Publix NSA 1/4 Cherry Pie, UPC: 41415-66990

These products were sold in the retail bakeries and were recalled due to the undeclared soy ingredient. 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.

The no-sugar cherry pie recall affected stores in Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee and Florida stores in Citrus County south through Monroe County, excluding Orlando proper stores.

The packaging error was detected during a routine label review. As part of Publix’ commitment to food safety, they routinely inspect product labeling for accuracy and product quality. There have been no reported cases of illness.

Customers who have purchased the product may return it to their store for a full refund or replacement. Consumers with questions may contact Publix at 1-800-242-1227.
