Firm Press Release
All lots of Market District brand Apricot Logs and Poppyseed Logs prepared and sold individually from the Bakery department inside Giant Eagle and Market District supermarkets with sell by dates from November 7, 2015 through November 17, 2015 have been voluntarily recalled by Giant Eagle due to an undeclared milk allergen. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. The product is safe for consumption by those who do not have milk allergies.
Approximately 460 potentially affected Apricot Logs and Poppyseed Logs were purchased in various transactions in Giant Eagle and Market District supermarkets in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and Maryland. There are no reported illnesses to date associated with this recall.
The logs were sold individually from the Bakery department with UPCs of:
