Publix Recalls Pies After Discovering They May Contain the Wrong Filling

Due to a filling mix-up, Publix has issued a recall for certain versions of its private-label pies from the store bakery.

The business recalled a limited quantity of Egg Custard Pies because the filling may have mistakenly included Coconut Cream Pie and so did not have the required allergy warning on the label. Here is all you need to know about the recall.

Between Oct. 20 and Nov. 16, the pies were offered in Publix's bakery area at numerous Florida stores. This recall affects Publix shops in Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties, so if you've bought an Egg Custard Pie at your bakery in the last several weeks, double-check the label. 

The pies affected by the recall are Egg Custard Pies with the GTIN number 4141537891, which may include filling from Publix Coconut Cream Pies. This is the only pie variant remembered. According to Publix, the pies have now been removed off store shelves, but be careful to check your refrigerator or freezer.

Consuming these recalled Egg Custard Pies might result in serious or life-threatening allergic reactions for anybody with a coconut allergy or sensitivity due to the undeclared allergen. If you own one of the recalled pies, you may return it to your nearest Publix for a full refund. 

You may return your pie whether you have a coconut allergy or not; but, if you do have a coconut allergy or sensitivity, you are strongly advised not to eat them. 

However, unless you are allergic to coconut, there is nothing intrinsically harmful about these Publix pies. The pies were only recalled due to an undisclosed allergy, therefore if you are not allergic to coconut, you should be OK eating the pie. 

As of present, no bad reactions or diseases have been documented after ingesting Publix's Egg Custard Pie. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the recall, please call Publix at 1-800-242-1227.
