In the past month, a Pennsylvania supermarket chain has voluntarily pulled 38 products from its shelves for mislabeled allergens.
The Pittsburgh-based supermarket chain, Giant Eagle, says that of the 38 products pulled from shelves, 11 were under their own label.
Giant Eagle to contact customers through alert system
In a statement to the press and public, Giant Eagle confirmed the allergen-related food recalls. “Out of an abundance of caution, and to best protect customers,” the statement reads in part, “the company has issued recent voluntary recalls for a select few Giant Eagle brand products.”
The supermarket chain is considered trustworthy by locals and the Pittsburgh-area media, with local news station WTAE stating that Giant Eagle “has established a strong record in food safety.”
Giant Eagle conducts consumer alert and recall alerts through its database of customers via their loyalty card system. As per FDA regulation, affected product is immediately removed from store shelves upon recall notice and posts regarding its recall are made.
