Tastykake cake treats sold by retailers across the U.S. are being added to a recall of cupcakes in more than half a dozen states because the baked goods could contain tiny fragments of metal mesh wire, according to a notice posted by the Food and Drug Administration.
Tastykake Krimpets — rectangle-shaped cakes that come in a butterscotch flavor or filled with jelly or creme — have been added to the list of products being recalled by Thomasville, Georgia-based Flowers Foods, the maker of Tastykakes and one of the biggest U.S. producers of packaged bakery foods.
The company had previously recalled multipacks of cupcakes after being notified by a vendor of the possible contamination in an ingredient. No injuries have been reported.
Sold by retailers including Target and more than 500 Walmart stores, the multipack cupcake treats were distributed in Delaware; Maryland; New Jersey; New York; Pennsylvania; Virginia; Washington, D.C.; and West Virginia, according to Flowers Foods.
People should not eat the recalled products but should instead discard them or return their purchase for a refund. Those with questions can call the company at 1(866) 245-8921 during business hours.
