512 cases (2,048 trays) of Gordon Food Service (GFS) Sienna Bakery® Chocolate Decadent Brownies (GFS#226240) and Sienna Bakery® Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies have been recalled by Dianne’s Fine Desserts due to a mislabeling and undeclared peanut, according to the FDA.
Consumers who are allergic or severely sensitive to peanuts are warned that eating the products will put them at risk of a major or life-threatening allergic reaction.
Initiated by the company on November 21, 2023, the recall covers trays labeled Sienna Bakery® Chocolate Decadent Brownies (GFS#226240) under lot code 23243, which can be found printed at the tray’s bottom-right corner. The trays measure 16.5 x 12.5 x 2 inches, and cases under the same label bear a lot code identifier of 6Z3H31 on master case labels found at the bottom-right corner, near the barcode. Lot code 23243 can also be found printed in the center of the master case label, as can be seen in product photo attached to the FDA announcement.
The products were distributed wholesale to both food service operators and retail Gordon Food Service (“GFS”) Stores across 14 U.S. states: Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.
While Dianne’s Fine Desserts has not received any reports of illness to date of the FDA announcement, the company took action after a customer observed that peanut-containing products were distributed in packaging that did not declare the allergen in its ingredient statement.
Anyone who is in possession of trays or cases of the product listed above is asked to take it back to the place of purchase to receive a complete refund.
Further questions or concerns may be directed to Dianne’s Fine on Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central Time. A Customer Service representative can be reached at 612-473-8235, while the Quality Assurance team can be contacted at 416-795-3456 or via email at email@example.com.
