New England Bakery Recalling Nearly 100,000 of Bread Products
By: Rich Hosford
A New England bakery that sells in the area is recalling a variety of products.
Koffee Kup Bakery, Inc. has voluntarily recalled approximately 99,000 packages of its bread products due to the possibility that there may be clear plastic pieces in some products, a release from the company states.
The product recall is limited to the bread products listed below and only those identified by the “use by” dates 9/30/16, 10/1/16, 10/2/16 or 10/3/16, which are printed on the closure tags of each package. Products bearing other “use by” dates were not affected, nor were any of Koffee Kup’s crullers or donuts, which are produced on a different manufacturing line.
“Koffee Kup discovered the presence of a foreign object in its bread and roll production through routine screening,” the recall states. “The company ceased production immediately and upon further investigation, discovered that a small piece of clear plastic entered the stream of production and broke apart during the production process, thus creating a hard-material choking hazard. The company elected to commence an immediate product recall of all products potentially contaminated by the plastic that entered the production stream.”
The recalled products were shipped to U.S. retailers in the states of VT, NH, ME, MA, CT, RI, NY, NJ, PA, MD, VA and the District of Columbia.
No Koffee Kup products other than those identified below bearing “use by” dates 9/30/16, 10/1/16, 10/2/16 or 10/3/16 were affected. No injuries have been reported to date.
