Why King’s Hawaiian just recalled 3 of its products

King’s Hawaiian uses an ingredient made by Lyons Magnus in its pretzel products. On August 10, 2022, the FDA announced that Lyons Magnus had expanded its voluntary recall of products that may contain Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum (the latter commonly referred to as botulism). Although no illnesses have been reported due to consumption of King’s Hawaiian products, the recall is being issued out of caution and to prevent possible illness. The FDA says Cronobacter sakazakii infections are rare and relatively mild, but Clostridium botulinum infections can be serious. The FDA explains that Clostridium botulinum can cause severe food poisoning that can lead to death, according to the FDA.

Other companies affected include Glucerna, Kate Farms, Oatly and Premier Protein. Some products, from nutritious beverages to cold brew coffee beverages, are included in this mass recall. Consumers are encouraged to consult the FDA press release for a full list of companies and products affected by the recall. At this time, King’s Hawaiian has removed its pretzel products from inventory for sale, and they plan to dispose of the items covered by the recall and resume production once they confirm that all ingredients are safe.
