Three Giant Eagle Stores Recall Bakery Items with Peanut Butter Due to Potential Salmonella Contamination
PITTSBURGH - Giant Eagle, Inc. has issued a voluntarily recall of multiple bakery items containing peanut butter sold at three Pennsylvania supermarkets in Ebensburg, Indiana and Northern Cambria due to potential salmonella contamination. Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
The impacted bakery products were sold in clam shell packaging, have sell by dates through May 28, 2022 and can be identified by the following 11 PLU numbers:
The recalled items were sold in the bakery departments of the three Giant Eagle stores only and most guests who have purchased the impacted product have already been contacted directly. The recalled items were sold in 120 transactions total. There have been no reports of illness associated with this recall to date.
Giant Eagle was made aware of the issue during the retailer’s investigation into the recently announced nationwide Jif brand peanut butter recall from the J.M Smucker Company. The peanut butter included in the recalled bakery items is included in the Jif peanut butter recall.
Guests who have purchased the affected product should dispose of it or return a qualifying receipt to the local Giant Eagle store for a refund. Guests with questions may call Giant Eagle Customer Care at 1-800-553-2324 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST.
In addition to this public communication regarding this recall, Giant Eagle initiated its consumer recall telephone notification process. The consumer recall process uses purchase data and consumer telephone numbers housed in the Giant Eagle Advantage Card database to alert those households that purchased the affected product and have updated telephone contact information in the database.
