Potential Contamination: Illinois Walmarts Pull 13 Baked Goods
Several years ago, I remember reading that a certain beer company was recalling six-packs of bottles because of worries that pieces of glass were present inside the bottles.
A friend wondered why they went to all the trouble of a recall when they could have just re-labeled the beer as "Chunky Style."
I was just thinking of that friend. He would have little to no problem buying himself a box or two of the baked goods that Walmart just announced a recall on.
The Recall Is Not About Pieces Of Glass, It's About Little Pieces Of Plastic
That's according to an announcement made yesterday by Enjoy Life Natural Brands:
Enjoy Life Natural Brands LLC announced today a voluntary recall, out of an abundance of caution, of a limited quantity of a select list of baked snacks products due to the potential presence of hard plastic pieces. The company became aware of this issue as a result of internal quality assurance surveillance.
The items were sold online and in-store in both the U.S. and Canada at Kroger, Wegmans, and other grocery stores--and in more than 4,440 Walmart stores across all 50 states, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico.
According To Walmart's Website, 3 Rockford Walmart Stores Carried The Products In Question
On their website, Walmart lists every single store that featured the Enjoy Life products that are subject to the recall. The three Rockford locations are:
- 7219 Walton Street
- 3849 Northridge Drive
- 3902 W. Riverside Blvd
What do you do if you find that you've got some of the products? Enjoy Life says you should not eat it and should discard any product you may have but you should keep any available packaging and contact the company at 1-855-543-5335 to get more information about the recall and how to receive a refund.
