LOS ANGELES — King’s Hawaiian is voluntarily recalling its Pretzel Slider Buns, Pretzel Hamburger Buns and Pretzel Bites out of an abundance of caution after a recall of an ingredient used in these products from supplier Lyons Magnus, the company said. 

Fresno, Calif.-based Lyons Magnus is recalling this ingredient due to its potential to cause microbial contamination from the organisms Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum.

While no illnesses associated with King’s Hawaiian pretzel bread have been reported, and no pathogens have been found in any King’s Hawaiian products to date, the recall is being conducted to ensure consumer safety, the company said.

This recall does not affect any other King’s Hawaiian products because no other products use this ingredient from Lyons Magnus, King’s Hawaiian said. Los Angeles-based King’s Hawaiian will resume producing all pretzel products once the company has ensured all current product has been disposed of and has confirmed the safety of all ingredients.

The company is advising consumers possessing any of these three products to dispose of them.
