Five Brownie Products from Glen's and Ashcraft's Markets Recalled

Grand Rapids, MI (SafetyAlerts) - Officials for Spartan Stores, Inc. have voluntarily recalled five brownie products from Glen's and Ashcraft's Markets because the product labels do not disclose eggs as an ingredient.

The company has received no reports of illness.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The affected products were removed from the shelves on Monday Nov. 6, 2000.

The product labels are marked Glen's or Ashcraft's Market.  Although Spartan Stores, Inc. owns and operates Glen's and Ashcraft's Markets, no Spartan brand, Home Harvest or other national brand products are affected by this recall, according to a company statement.

The following brownies contain eggs that are not listed on the ingredients statement and all have sell-by dates of Nov. 1 through Nov. 11:

  1. German Chocolate Brownies
  2. Peanut Butter Brownies-Giant
  3. Cream Cheese Brownies
  4. Peanut Butter Fudge Brownies- 8" square
  5. M&M Brownies-Giant

The recall was initiated after a label check revealed eggs were not listed as an ingredient in five brownie products.

Consumers who have purchased any one of the five brownie products can return the product(s) to any Glen's or Ashcraft's Market for a full refund.

Consumers with questions can contact Spartan Stores' Consumer Connections at 800-451-8500.
