Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., is issuing a voluntary recall on potentially mislabeled items from its in-store bakeries. The recall affects stores across Alabama.
The items listed below are being recalled because the products may be mislabeled:
- "Winn-Dixie Lemon Bar" cakes
- "Winn-Dixie Chocolate Cherry Bar" cakes
- "Winn-Dixie Bakery Iced Cinnamon Rolls - 6 Pack"
The mislabeled products may contain undeclared egg and/or wheat. Individuals with an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction. Individuals sensitive to wheat protein can suffer a moderate-acute allergic reaction. Gluten intolerance in adults can manifest as malabsorption, diarrhea, weight loss, anemia, or osteomalacia.
The recalled items were sold in the bakery department of Winn-Dixie stores, both cakes feature a Winn-Dixie bakery label affixed to a clam-shell package.
"Winn-Dixie Lemon Bar" cake package labels identify the product as "Bar Cake Lemon" and are marked with a UPC code that begins with 209983.
"Winn-Dixie Chocolate Cherry Bar" cake package labels identify the product as "Bar Cake Choc Cherry" and are marked with a UPC code that begins with 209831.
