Minnesota + Wisconsin Recall Details For King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Buns + Bites
A popular brand of bread and bun products are involved in a voluntary recall initiated out of "an abundance of caution". King's Hawaiian has issued the recall on three of their products: Pretzel Slider Buns, Pretzel Hamburger Buns, and Pretzel Bites. The bread products are sold nationally, including in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
According to details shared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the main concern is the potential for Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum contamination.
