GARDENA, Calif. (CNS) — Gardena-based baking company King’s Hawaiian is voluntarily recalling its Pretzel Slider Buns, Pretzel Hamburger Buns and Pretzel Bites products after an ingredient used by one of its suppliers was recalled.
The supplier, Lyons Magnus, is recalling the ingredient due to the possibility of microbial contamination, including by the organisms Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum, according to King’s Hawaiian.
A Friday statement from King’s Hawaiian did not identify the ingredient in question and a company spokesman could not be reached.
According to the company, no diseases have been reported related to King’s Hawaiian pretzel breads and no pathogens have been found in any of its products.
“The recall is being conducted to ensure consumer safety,” the company said.
The recall does not affect any other King’s Hawaiian products because no other products use the Lyons Magnus ingredient, King’s Hawaiian said.
The company will resume production of all of its pretzel products once it has ensured that all current products have been disposed of and the safety of all ingredients has been confirmed, officials said.
Anyone in possession of recalled King’s Hawaiian products should discard them.
Consumers can contact the company at 877-695-4227, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with questions or to request a replacement product.
