Flowers Foods has just announced a recall of all brands of Bar-B-Q bread for containing undeclared milk. Dairy allergies are very common throughout the country. People who eat this bread unaware of its true contents can put their life at risk. There have been no illnesses reported to date.
Sunbeam Bar-B-Q Bread, Bunny Bar-B-Q Bread, Flowers Deli Bar-B-Q Bread, and Ingles Pull-Apart Bar-B-Q Bread are included in this recall. Various retailers have sold this bread in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Tennessee. This a voluntary recall and Flower Foods is advising its trade customers to remove this product from sale immediately. It is strictly the Bar-B-Q bread and no other types under these brands are being recalled.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that there was a product containing milk in the packaging and it did not reveal the presence of it. There are just less than 3,000 loaves of bread that are currently under recall.
The company is still in the process of retrieving all of the mislabeled loaves but it urges all who have bought the bread to discontinue the use of it and return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Flowers Foods is currently working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) council to ensure the safety of any customers who may have purchased this recalled bread.
