Kansas City, KS – Tippin’s Gourmet Pies, LLC today is voluntarily recalling select Key Lime Pies because they may contain flour with undeclared peanut residue. Tippin’s initiated the recall after we became aware that our supplier, Kellogg Company, was conducting a recall of graham cracker crumbs because they may contain undeclared peanut residue. The graham cracker crumbs were used to make the crust for our Key Lime Pies identified below.
While consumers with severe peanut allergies should avoid the recalled product, the FDA has stated that the amount of peanut exposure from the flour is low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers. Tippin’s has received no notice of related illness or allergic reactions involving this product to date, and is taking this action out of an abundance of caution.
This recall applies only to the product listed. This recall does not affect any other Tippin’s brand products.
This product was sold to distributers throughout Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Illinois. Tippin’s Gourmet Pies will work with its customers to ensure that the recalled products are no longer available for sale or distribution.
In the event that consumers believe they have purchased the listed product and have an allergy concern, they should return the product to the store they purchased it from for a full refund, or discard the product. Consumers are urged to contact the store they purchased product from for questions concerning if your product is affected by this recall.
