WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Giant Eagle Inc [GIAEG.UL] is recalling some of its Irish Soda Bread because it contains an undeclared milk allergen, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Thursday.
One customer has reportedly fallen ill after eating the bread, the FDA said in a statement. The Pittsburgh company is recalling Irish Soda Bread baked and sold inside Giant Eagle supermarkets between Feb. 24 and March 11.
The allergen “creates the potential for serious health consequences if consumed by those with milk allergies,” the statement said.
About 2,000 customers bought the bread in Giant Eagle and Market District stores in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland and West Virginia, it said.
