Giant Eagle became aware of the product issues during an ongoing ingredient label review. The product labels for the recalled items, which all contain egg and/or milk, omitted egg and/or milk as allergens. Upon discovering this omission, the company immediately removed all potentially affected products, implemented a register block to ensure that the products were not inadvertently purchased, and is launching its consumer alert telephone outreach system to directly notify customers.

 

Customers with egg or milk allergies who have purchased an affected product should dispose of it or return it to their local Giant Eagle and Market District store for a refund. Customers with questions may call Giant Eagle Customer Care at 1-800-553-2324 Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. EDT.
