GOOD EATS

JACKSONVILLE (CBS4) – Winn-Dixie has some not-so-sweet news concerning the recall of several of its bakery items. The supermarket chain is voluntarily recalling four bakery items because the products may be mislabeled.

Those recalled items are:

“Winn-Dixie Bakery Iced Cinnamon Rolls – 6 Pack”

“Winn-Dixie Lemon Bar” cakes

“Winn-Dixie Chocolate Cherry Bar” cakes

“Winn-Dixie Bakery Iced Cinnamon Rolls – 6 Pack”

The mislabeled products may contain undeclared egg and/or wheat.

Individuals with an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction. Individuals sensitive to wheat protein can suffer a moderate-acute allergic reaction. Gluten intolerance in adults can manifest as malabsorption, diarrhea, weight loss, anemia, or osteomalacia.

Sold in the bakery department of Winn-Dixie stores, both cakes feature a Winn-Dixie bakery label affixed to a clam-shell package.

“Winn-Dixie Lemon Bar” cake package labels identify the product as “Bar Cake Lemon” and are marked with a UPC code that begins with 209983.

“Winn-Dixie Chocolate Cherry Bar” cake package labels identify the product as “Bar Cake Choc Cherry” and are marked with a UPC code that begins with 209831.

“Winn-Dixie Bakery Iced Cinnamon Rolls – 6 Pack” are marked with a UPC code that begins with 209806.

Products affected by this recall were sold in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.

“Given this serious issue, we decided to pull the products from our stores and encourage customers with any concerns to return the product for a full refund, no questions asked,” said Mary Kellmanson, Winn-Dixie’s group vice president of marketing. “We are now conducting a thorough investigation to determine how the breakdown occurred so that we can prevent it from happening in the future. Protecting the health of our guests is our top priority.”

Winn-Dixie is working in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network. The recall was initiated as a result of an internal investigation after receipt of a customer complaint.

Consumers can return the cakes to any Winn-Dixie store for a full refund or exchange.

Consumers with questions can also contact Winn-Dixie Guest Services toll free at 1-866-WINN-DIXIE.
