Announcement
Kansas City, KS – Tippin’s Gourmet Pies, LLC today is voluntarily recalling select Key Lime Pies because they may contain flour with undeclared peanut residue. Tippin’s initiated the recall after we became aware that our supplier, Kellogg Company, was conducting a recall of graham cracker crumbs because they may contain undeclared peanut residue. The graham cracker crumbs were used to make the crust for our Key Lime Pies identified below.
While consumers with severe peanut allergies should avoid the recalled product, the FDA has stated that the amount of peanut exposure from the flour is low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers. Tippin’s has received no notice of related illness or allergic reactions involving this product to date, and is taking this action out of an abundance of caution.
This recall applies only to the product listed. This recall does not affect any other Tippin’s brand products.
