Giant Eagle announced Wednesday that it was pulling two different brands of canned pumpkin from its shelves, Fox 8 News reports.
The store says Valu Time canned pumpkin and Food Club Solid Pack Pumpkin should not be consumed.
Customers who purchased the products are being advised to discard the items.
Specific reasons about what prompted the recall were not immediately released. A posting on the Giant Eagle website only stated that the pumpkin products did “not meet quality standards.”
Giant Eagle, Inc. released the following statement late Wednesday regarding the recall:
“Today, Giant Eagle, Inc. performed a voluntary market withdrawal of all Valu Time brand canned pumpkin purchased on or after August 30, 2011, as well as all Food Club brand canned pumpkin purchased on or after October 28, 2011. These brands are produced by Topco Associates, LLC.
The market withdrawal was performed out of an abundance of caution as a result of the product not meeting quality standards. While Giant Eagle is not aware of any immediate health concern, the company is working with Topco to further investigate the situation and will notify customers if any additional actions are warranted as a result of these efforts.
Customers should not consume these products in any way, or anything in which they were used as ingredients, and should dispose of the product.
Customers are invited to receive a full refund, complimentary pie, or replacement ingredients, from any area Giant Eagle, Inc. supermarket.”
