Food recall: Frozen pretzel dogs containing a known allergen

The pretzel hot dog manufacturer that makes Auntie Anne's frozen pretzel dogs failed to properly label its products as containing soy lecithin.

Soy lecithin is a known allergen, and without it being disclosed on product packaging, those with soy allergies could be in danger.

The recalled products were made by City Line Foods Manufacturing Co. in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and include the following items:

  • Auntie Anne's All Beef Classic Pretzel Dogs
  • Auntie Anne's Fundraising Pretzel Dogs
  • West Creek Black Angus Beef Pretzel Dogs
  • Kunzler Pretzel Dogs
  • Kunzler Turkey Pretzel Dogs
  • Berks All Beef Pretzel Franks
  • Nathan's Famous Pretzel Dogs
  • City Line Foods Pretzel Dogs

The problem was discovered during a routine label review by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

More than 1,196,669 pounds of frozen pretzel dogs are being recalled. The products subject to the recall will be marked "EST. or P-34073" inside of the USDA mark of inspection on their packages, so check carefully.

Luckily no one has reported any illness as a result of the mislabeling, but if you think you have any of these products in your freezer, then better safe than sorry: Throw them out.

If you have any questions about the recall, you can contact Heather Neary, Auntie Anne's Inc.'s chief marketing officer, at 717-435-1558.
