angel (WXIN) – Kings Hawaiian is recalling some of its products due to potential microbial contamination.
On Friday, Kings Hawaiian announced that it is recalling its pretzel slider buns, pretzel hamburger buns and pretzel bites.
The products are being recalled because they contain an ingredient that another company is recalling because of its potential to cause microbial contamination, from organisms including Chronobacter sakazaki and Clostridium botulinum.
chronobacter sakazaki Baby formula was on the cusp of a recall in February 2022. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says infection with this germ can be very serious for older people and people with HIV, organ transplants or cancer.
Clostridium botulinum can cause a severe form of food poisoning six hours to two weeks after consumption. Symptoms may include double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and muscle weakness.
Botulism poisoning can cause respiratory paralysis, which can result in death, unless assisted breathing is provided.
Although no disease associated with King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Bread has been reported and no pathogen has been found in any King’s Hawaiian products to date, the company said it is conducting the recall to ensure consumer safety.
The following products are affected by the lot recall.
The company advises that any of the affected products should be thrown away.
The recall does not affect any other Kings Hawaiian products, as only the ingredient Lyons Magnus is used in these products. The company will resume production of products after ensuring that all existing products have been disposed of and have verified the safety of all ingredients.
Anyone who has questions about the recall, or who wishes to request a replacement product, contact Kings Hawaiian at 877-695-4227, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time can contact.
