DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. (AP) - Sara Lee Corporation said today it is recalling 27 brands of whole wheat bread products because they could contain small metal pieces. The products were sold in Georgia.
Company spokesman Mark Goldman said a recent routine inspection of a bakery in Meridian, Mississippi, uncovered problems with a flour-sifting screen.
Goldman said the machine was -- quote -- "not up to our specification and raised the possibility some metal could have dislodged."
The recall involves EarthGrains, Publix, Sara Lee Delightful, Sara Lee Hearty & Delicious and several other brands that were stamped "best if purchased by" July 25th, 2007, to August seventh, 2007, and included the code "222."
The products were sold in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee.
