ucm480661All lots of New Year’s Pretzels prepared and sold individually from the Bakery department inside the Carmel Market District located at 11505 N Illinois Street in Carmel, Indiana since December 26 have been ¬†recalled by Giant Eagle, Inc. due to an undeclared walnut allergen. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to walnuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. The product is safe for consumption by those who do not have walnut allergies. Approximately 23,000 potentially affected New Year’s Pretzels were purchased in various transactions in Giant Eagle and Market District supermarkets in Pennsylvania and Ohio, with the Carmel Market District also selling the product. Giant Eagle, Inc. became aware of the issue when a Pennsylvania customer who purchased the product reported a related walnut allergy issue. The product label for the New Year’s Pretzels, which contain walnuts, omitted walnuts as an allergen. Customers with a walnut allergy who have purchased the affected product should dispose of it.
