Bimbo Bakeries USA Issues an Allergy Alert on Undeclared Tree Nuts in Oroweat 100% Whole Wheat Bread Packaging

Reason: Because it may contain tree nuts that are not listed on the label.

Pack/Codes: The affected product has red, blue or tan closure tabs with a "Best By" date of 9/22, 9/23 or 9/25 on the tab.

Distribution: [Multi-State]: The bread was baked at the company's Denver plant and sold at retail locations in five states: Iowa, Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado and New Mexico. There was also very limited distribution in the Moab, Utah area. Areas outside these states are not affected. No other Oroweat products are involved in this recall.

Illnesses: No illnesses have been reported to date.

DENVER, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Bimbo Bakeries USA today announced a voluntary recall of Oroweat 100% Whole Wheat bread because it may contain tree nuts that are not listed on the label. Individuals with allergies to tree nuts run the risk of a serious and or life threatening reaction if they consume this product.

The bread was baked at the company's Denver plant and sold at retail locations in five states: Iowa, Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado and New Mexico. There was also very limited distribution in the Moab, Utah area. Areas outside these states are not affected. No other Oroweat products are involved in this recall.

How to Identify the Product

The affected product has red, blue or tan closure tabs with a "Best By" date of 9/22, 9/23 or 9/25 on the tab.

No illnesses have been reported to date. The recall was necessary because Oroweat Health Nut bread was inadvertently placed in Oroweat 100% Whole Wheat bread packaging. The 100% Whole Wheat ingredient legend does not declare tree nuts on the bag.

Consumers who are not allergic to tree nuts can safely consume the product. Consumers can return the product to the store where it was purchased for an exchange or refund.

Any questions about the recall should be directed to a company representative at 877-224-7374.
