Aug. 16, 2022 -- King’s Hawaiian has issued a cautionary recall of pretzel buns and bites after one of its suppliers recalled an ingredient used in them.

The King’s Hawaiian products are Pretzel Slider Buns, Pretzel Hamburger Buns and Pretzel Bites, the FDA says.

No illnesses have been reported and no pathogens have been found in any King’s Hawaiian products, the FDA says. “The recall is being conducted to ensure consumer safety.”

The pretzel products included an ingredient from supplier Lyons Magnus, which is recalling the ingredient because of the potential it can cause contamination from germs Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum.

King’s Hawaiian doesn’t use the Lyons Magnus ingredient in any other products, so no others are being recalled. Production will resume when King’s Hawaiian makes sure the current supply has been destroyed and all its ingredients are safe.

The FDA says anyone who has King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Slider Buns, King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Hamburger Buns or King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Bites should throw them away. Consumers can call King’s Hawaiian at 877-695-4227, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time.

On July 28, Lyons Magnus announced the voluntary recall of protein and beverage products over worries they may be contaminated with germs like Cronobacter sakazakii. The announcement identified 53 affected products, ranging from Oatly Oat Milk to Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee.

The company expanded the list on Aug. 10 because some products may also be contaminated with Clostridium botulinum.

The complete list of recalled products is on the FDA website,
