(WKBN) – Flower Foods Inc., the parent company of the Tastykake brand, has expanded its multi-state Tastykake Cupcake recall to include Krimpets sold throughout the country.
The FDA shared the amended announcement on Thursday, which announced that six types of Krimpets products were also being recalled due to the “potential presence of tiny fragments of metal mesh wire.” The announcement came shortly after Flower Foods Inc. initially recalled three multi-packs of Cupcakes for the same reason.
Flower Foods, Inc. said the Tastykake Cupcakes were sold in states including Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, as well as Washington, D.C. The recalled Krimpets were sold to retail customers throughout the U.S.
No injuries or incidents have been reported, but customers are being urged not to consume any of the recalled items.
All recalled products, including the amended products, are listed in the table below. Customers can find the UPC codes and “enjoy by” dates on the top, sides, or bottom of the packaging.
