Publix Issues Allergy Alert: Pecans in Publix Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie

LAKELAND, Fla.– Publix Super Markets is issuing a voluntary recall for
Publix Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie, because it was mislabeled and may contain
undeclared pecans. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to pecans
run the risk of allergic reaction if they consume this product. Product was
prepared at Publix stores for retail sale between November and December 2009.
The recalled product has a UPC number of: 002-95118-20399-7 and is packaged in a
30 ounce plastic container. The name of the product describes the product as
Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie. The ingredient statement on the label does not
declare pecan, which is an ingredient in the pie. The mislabeled pies were
distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina.

As part of our commitment to food safety and in cooperation with the FDA, we
are issuing this voluntarily recall, said Maria Brous, Publix director of media
and community relations. Since customers may still have these pies in their
homes, we wanted to take every precaution to make them aware of the pecan as an
ingredient. To date, there have been no reported cases of illness. Consumers who
have purchased the product in question may return the product to their local
store for a full refund. Publix customers with additional questions may call our
Consumer Relations department at 1-800-242-1227 or by visiting our website at
