Pretzel Buns and Bites Recalled

 

The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) is advising consumers that King’s Hawaiian is recalling its Pretzel Slider Buns, Pretzel Hamburger Buns, and Pretzel Bites following a recall of an ingredient used in these products from the supplier Lyons Magnus. (See images attached of labels.) Lyons Magnus is recalling this ingredient due to the potential for it to cause microbial contamination including from the organisms Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum. While no illnesses associated with King’s Hawaiian pretzel bread have been reported, and no pathogens have been found in any King’s Hawaiian products to date, the recall is being conducted to ensure consumer safety.

 

These products were sold at Walmart, Stop and Shop, and Target locations in Rhode Island. These products may have been sold by additional retailers in Rhode Island. Consumers in possession of any King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Slider Buns, King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Hamburger Buns, or King’s Hawaiian Pretzel Bites should dispose of the product.

 

This recall does not impact any other King’s Hawaiian products, as no other products use this ingredient from Lyons Magnus.

 

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott says thousands are without power across the state as Ian makes landfall. Now a post-tropical cyclone, Ian landed as a hurricane in South Carolina earlier today and is moving up the East Coast. Scott says around 200-thousand people are without power, and that now is not the time to ease up worries.        The White House says the federal response to Hurricane Ian is not about politics. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre [[ kar-EENE jhan-pea-AIR ]] declined to offer an opinion about whether Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is doing a good job in his storm-ravaged state. Jean-Pierre noted DeSantis and President Biden have had several productive phone conversations.        Former President Trump is scheduled to be deposed next month in a defamation lawsuit.

In its latest report on the outbreak, the CDC said cases could either decline or plateau, or begin rising "slowly" or "rapidly" with exponential growth.        A high-profile trial stemming from last year's Capitol riot is expected to begin soon. Yahoo News reports jury selection has ended in the trial of Stewart Rhodes, who is charged with seditious conspiracy for his role in the attack. Rhodes is the leader of the Oath Keepers militia group who authorities say helped plan the riot and called for civil war. He's one of five defendants in the trial that'll start next week.       Cleveland Browns star Myles Garrett says his recent car crash was a serious wake up call. The defensive end was going 20 miles over the speed limit when he crashed his car on Monday. Thankfully, both he and his passenger escaped relatively unscathed, with Garrett suffering a minor shoulder and bicep sprain.
