Kansas City, Kan.-based Tippin’s Gourmet Pies has voluntarily recalled selected key lime pies because of the possibility of undeclared peanut residue in their flour.
The company initiated the recall after it became aware that Kellogg Co., its supplier of graham cracker crumbs used in pie crusts, had recalled the crumbs.
Kellogg’s declaration of possible peanut residue has led to recall notices from multiple food manufacturers.
Tippin’s said its recall notice was issued out of “an abundance of caution” to protect people who might have severe peanut allergies. Tippin’s said it hadn’t received any notices of allergic reactions involving its pies.
The Tippin’s recall affects only its 8-inch key lime pies with a UPC code of 680816050057 that were sold in Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Arizona and Illinois. The possibly affected pies carry lot number dates between April 7, 2016, and May 17, 2016.
