AMENDED: Flowers Foods issues voluntary recall on certain Tastykake products due to possible presence of tiny fragments of metal mesh wire

Flowers Foods amended its Oct. 31 voluntary recall press release on certain Tastykake products to reflect additional products included in the recall.

As a precautionary measure, the company is voluntarily recalling certain Tastykake multi-pack cupcakes and certain Krimpets products due to the potential presence of tiny fragments of metal mesh wire. The recall was initiated following notification by a vendor of the possible contamination in a supplied ingredient and is being amended following additional notification from the vendor.

The Tastykake multi-pack cupcakes products being recalled were distributed to retail customers in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington DC, and West Virginia. The Tastykake Krimpets products being recalled were distributed to retail customers throughout the U.S.
