The recalled items were sold only in the bakery departments of the three Giant Eagle stores and most customers who purchased the affected product have already been contacted directly. The recalled items were sold in 120 total transactions. No illnesses associated with this recall have been reported to date.
Giant Eagle became aware of the issue during the retailer’s investigation into the recently announced nationwide recall of Jif brand peanut butter by the JM Smucker Company. The peanut butter included in the recalled bakery products is included in the Jif Peanut Butter Recall.
Customers who purchased the affected product should discard it or return an eligible receipt to the local Giant Eagle store for a refund. Guests with questions can call Giant Eagle Customer Service at 1-800-553-2324 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST.
In addition to this public communication regarding this recall, Giant Eagle has initiated its consumer telephone recall notification process. The consumer recall process uses consumer purchase data and phone numbers housed in the Giant Eagle Advantage Card database to alert households that purchased the affected product and updated phone contact information in the database.
