Flowers bread products potentially contaminated with salmonella

A number of bread products produced by Flowers Foods Inc. are being recalled because an ingredient in the bread, whey powder, is potentially contaminated with salmonella. The ingredient has also been recalled by the third-party whey powder manufacturer and supplier because of potential contamination.

Flowers has recalled Swiss Rolls that are distributed nationwide under the brand names Mrs. Freshley’s, Food Lion, H-E-B, Baker’s Treat, Market Square, and Great Value. The recall also includes Captain John Derst’s Old Fashioned Bread distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. No illnesses have yet been reported related to salmonella contaminated bread, but consumers who have purchased these products should not eat them.
