February 5, 2002Winn-Dixie Has Recalled Masa Real and
Jacksonville, FL (SafetyAlerts)
- The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. has recalled
Winn-Dixie bakery plain croissants, coconut masa real and guava masa real
because they may contain undeclared eggs. 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 goods were distributed in Winn-Dixie stores in the following South
Florida counties: Broward, Charlotte, Collier, Dade, Hendry, Lee, Martin,
Monroe, Okeechobee, Palm Beach and Sarasota. The recall dates are for
products distributed between December 17, 2001 and February 3, 2002.
The croissants were packaged in a two, four or six pack clear tray and the
masa real was packaged in a nine count clear tray. Both had a sell date from
December 20, 2001 to February 3, 2002.
No illnesses have been reported at this date.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the croissants,
coconut masa real and guava masa real were distributed in packaging that did
not indicate the inclusion of eggs. Investigation reveals that the problem
was caused by computer error.
Winn-Dixie has corrected the error and anticipates no further problems.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to return them to the
place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact
Winn-Dixie at 1-888-245-8584.
