Glenn Wayne Bakery of Bohemia, NY recalled Chocolate Iced Donuts, Boston Cream Donuts, Brownies and Walnut Brownies out of an abundance of caution because of a potential foreign material hazard in its icing which can cause serous injury if swallowed.
The recalled baked goods were distributed to New York State’s Westchester, Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island, Nassau, Suffolk, Dutchess and Rockland counties in retail stores. All products were pulled from shelves immediately upon notice.
Donuts were packed into paper-lined trays for self-service; donuts were made on 12/15/22, and no lot information is available on trays once placed on display. Brownies came in a 3.5-ounce, clear plastic package marked with a best by date of 12/18/22 on the bottom.
There have been no reported injuries to date.
The recall was the result of a consumer complaint of glass in the donut icing, which was later proved to be unfounded (i.e., confirmed to be sucrose) by a food forensics laboratory.
The company has ceased using the icing and as a result of the food forensics laboratory’s investigation, considers the matter an isolated and closed incident.
Consumers with questions may contact the company at (631) 289-9200, ext. 212.
