FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – December 29, 2009 – Publix Super Markets is issuing a voluntary recall for Publix Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie, because it was mislabeled and may contain undeclared pecans. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to pecans run the risk of allergic reaction if they consume this product. Product was prepared at Publix stores for retail sale between November and December 2009. The recalled product has a UPC number of: 002- 95118-20399-7 and is packaged in a 30 ounce plastic container. The name of the product describes the product as "Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie.: The ingredient statement on the label does not declare pecan, which is an ingredient in the pie. The mislabeled pies were distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina.

"As part of our commitment to food safety and in cooperation with the FDA, we are issuing this voluntarily recall," said Maria Brous, Publix director of media and community relations. "Since customers may still have these pies in their homes, we wanted to take every precaution to make them aware of the pecan as an ingredient. To date, there have been no reported cases of illness. Consumers who have purchased the product in question may return the product to their local store for a full refund. Publix customers with additional questions may call our Consumer Relations department at 1-800-242-1227 or by visiting our website at http://www.publix.com.";

Now, I don't want to be flippant. My daughter is allergic to pecans and peanuts, and certainly I worry about mislabeling (and therefore I would never buy a pie at the store... we just make ours). But okay. If you are allergic to pecans, are you likely to buy a pumpkin pecan streusel pie and expect it to not have pecans?

I saw this on twitter and I had the EXACT same thought .... how likely would it be that someone who is actually allergic to pecans to buy a pie that is labelled as being a pumpkin PECAN streusel pie? I mean duh ...it has pecans in the name of the products. Yes, it probably needs to be labelled as such but still.....

I'm glad some other folks had the same thought. I thought this, but then didn't want to say anything because I was worried that maybe I would offend someone because I don't have nut allergies.

I wouldn't think that someone with a pecan allergy would even pick that up to check the ingredients. I wouldn't pick up an apple pie to see if the ingredients listed apple...

LOL

I have had that pie in my hand three or four times since Thanksgiving. We allow foods like this in the house. I knew by the title it wasn't safe for DS2, knew it wasn't safe for DS1.

But how many "buttery" items out there didn't actually contain an ounce of dairy.
