Expanded: cookies, cakes and more recalled from major national chains
Allergy sufferers, beware: There's a huge baked goods recall going on, affecting several different restaurants and retailer across the country. A batch of peanut-contaminated flour made its way to CSM Bakery Solutions in Tucker, Georgia, an industrial bakery that produces treats for outlets like 7-Eleven, Cinnabon and Chick-fil-A.
The products were shipped in packaging that didn't declare the presence of peanuts, a mistake that could be potentially deadly to those suffering from peanut allergies.
CSM has located the source of the contamination and switched flour suppliers, though they aren't disclosing which company they got the original flour from.
Some of the recalled products include:
- Safeway 8-inch single-layer Red Velvet Cake
- ACME 12-inch decorated chocolate chip cookies
- Jewel 12-inch decorated cookies
- Cinnabon Stix
- 7-Eleven Fresh To Go cookies
- 7-Eleven Fully Baked chocolate chunk, sugar and oatmeal raisin cookies
- Old Home Kitchens Sliced Lemon Crème Cake, Sliced Vanilla Crème Cake and Sliced Strawberry Swirl Crème Cake
- Chick-fil-A chocolate chunk cookies
- Hostess snack cakes and doughnuts
- Rose Gold select varieties of pretzels
You can see information about the specific stores and states affected by the recalls on CMS Bakery Solutions' website.
Seeing just how many products are affected by the recall really shines a light on the fact that most of the "freshly-baked" goods we can get at convenience and grocery stores are actually mass-produced off-site. Maybe next time you're craving some sweet treats at home, you can try one of these recipes instead.
