Great Harvest Bread Co. of Commerce, Michigan is recalling nine varieties of breads because they may contain undeclared eggs, milk, or wheat. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs, milk, or wheat run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The following bread varieties with undeclared allergens were distributed at The Village Butcher Shoppe in Milford; Zerbo's Market in Commerce Township; and the Milford and Walled Lake farmers markets (NOTE: Great Harvest brand breads from other franchises are not affected by this recall):
- Cinnamon Swirl
- Cinnamon Chip
- Golden Cheddar Garlic
- Dakota Seed
- Oregon Herb
- Pepperoni Pizza Rolls
- Sandwich Rye
- Santa Fe Jalapeno Cheese
One consumer complaint was received regarding an allergic reaction after consuming cinnamon swirl bread.
The recall was initiated after an investigation by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) identified that labels on various types of breads did not indicate the presence of eggs, wheat, or milk in the ingredients. A subsequent investigation by the firm revealed the problem was caused by a temporary error in label production. The firm is working with MDARD to ensure the labeling issues are corrected.
Consumers who have purchased these breads and have concerns should return the product to Great Harvest Bread Co. of Commerce, located at 3376 E. West Maple Rd, Commerce, MI 48390, for a full refund.
Consumers with questions may also contact the company directly at 248-926-9848.
