King’s Hawaiian is voluntarily recalling its Pretzel Slider Buns, Pretzel Hamburger Buns and Pretzel Bites products out of caution following a recall of an ingredient used in pretzel products from one of its suppliers, Lyons Magnus. Lyons Magnus is recalling this ingredient due to potential for causing microbial contamination, including organisms Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum. Although no illnesses associated with King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Bread have been reported and no pathogens have been found in King’s Hawaiian products to date, the recall is ongoing to ensure consumer safety.
This recall does not affect any other King’s Hawaiian products, as no other products use this Lyons Magnus ingredient. King’s Hawaiian will resume production of all pretzel products once the company has ensured that all current products have been phased out and confirmed the safety of all ingredients.
Consumers in possession of King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Slider Buns, King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Hamburger Buns or King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Bites should discard the product. Consumers can contact King’s Hawaiian at 877-695-4227, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PT, with questions or to request a replacement product.
