Did you buy any wedding or almondine wedding cookies in the bakery section of Harry's Farmers Market or Whole Foods Markets recently? The grocer is recalling these bulk cookie items because they contain almonds and pecans, two undeclared allergens. These products were sold loose as Cookies-by-the-Pound, a self-service section in the Bakery area of the store. The two products are
- Wedding Cookies (contain pecans)
- Almondine Wedding Cookies (contain almonds)
Consumers with almond or pecan allergies who have purchased these cookies from the Cookies-by-the-Pound section are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to almonds or pecans run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Wedding Cookies and Almondine Wedding Cookies were distributed in Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee between Oct. 22 and Nov. 15. One illness has been confirmed in Georgia.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the point-of-sale signs on the almond- and pecan-containing products were missing this allergen information.
Consumers with questions may contact 512-542-0060 Monday to Friday 10am-6pm EDT excluding Nov. 22 – 23.
Customers are encouraged to return any of these products to Whole Foods Market for a full refund.
