Sara Lee issues allergy alert on undeclared peanuts in pecan pies
Oakbrook Terrace-based Sara Lee Frozen Bakery is recalling specific lots of select Sara Lee, Chef Pierre and Devonshire pecan pies produced between March 4 and April 1, 2021, because the product may contain undeclared peanuts.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product.
Consumers who believe they have purchased recalled lot codes are urged to confirm the lot code with the place of purchase.
There have been no reports of illness or injury to date. This recall has been initiated due to the unintentional cross-contamination of raw pecans in shells with residual peanuts during agricultural transport and storage of pecans by a supplier.
Sara Lee Frozen Bakery has instructed all impacted distributors to recall and destroy all product in market.
Images of the products and lot numbers are available at saraleefrozenbakery.com. Consumers who believe they have purchased recalled lot codes are urged to confirm the lot code with the place of purchase and ask for a full refund if the UPC and lot code matches what is listed above.
Consumers with questions may contact the company via email at SaraLeeFrozenBakery@casupport.com or at (800) 323-7117.
