Winn-Dixie Issues Voluntary Recall On Specific In-Store Bakery Items Due To Mislabeling And Undeclared Wheat

Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., is voluntarily recalling from its in-store bakeries the following items because the products may be mislabeled:
  •     “Winn-Dixie Lemon Bar” cakes
  •     “Winn-Dixie Chocolate Cherry Bar” cakes
  •     “Winn-Dixie Bakery Iced Cinnamon Rolls - 6 Pack”
The mislabeled products may contain undeclared egg and/or wheat. Individuals with an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction. Individuals sensitive to wheat protein can suffer a moderate-acute allergic reaction. Gluten intolerance in adults can manifest as malabsorption, diarrhea, weight loss, anemia, or osteomalacia.

Sold in the bakery department of Winn-Dixie stores, both cakes feature a Winn-Dixie bakery label affixed to a clam-shell package. “Winn-Dixie Lemon Bar” cake package labels identify the product as “Bar Cake Lemon” and are marked with a UPC code that begins with 209983. “Winn-Dixie Chocolate Cherry Bar” cake package labels identify the product as “Bar Cake Choc Cherry” and are marked with a UPC code that begins with 209831. “Winn-Dixie Bakery Iced Cinnamon Rolls - 6 Pack”

are marked with a UPC code that begins with 209806. Products affected by this recall were sold in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.

“Given this serious issue, we decided to pull the products from our stores and encourage customers with any concerns to return the product for a full refund, no questions asked,” said Mary Kellmanson, Winn-Dixie’s group vice president of marketing. “We are now conducting a thorough investigation to determine how the breakdown occurred so that we can prevent it from happening in the future. Protecting the health of our guests is our top priority.”

Winn-Dixie is working in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network. The recall was initiated as a result of an internal investigation after receipt of a customer complaint.

Consumers with questions or any doubt are encouraged to return the cakes to their neighborhood Winn-Dixie store for a full refund or exchange. Consumers with questions about the recalled cakes may also contact Winn-Dixie Guest Services toll free at 1-866-WINN-DIXIE.

Thank you so much. 8-12 weeks! Oh my goodness, I don't think I can do that. I think going gluten-free made my body's defenses go down or something. I felt bad before, but reintroducing it was completely awful! I still feel queezy a few days later. Let's pray it just comes back positive. lol

Thanks for the feedback! Gemini you're very right - surgery was a totally weird recommendation. My current doctor treated me without hormones because my TSH levels are normal. The doctor found that my Vitamin D levels were severely low and put me on a high dose. They climbed just out of the deficient range. I am very active and frequently outdoors, and they still only climb out of deficient If i'm on intensive VIitamin D supplementation. - In addition, She also suggested I a modified lower carb diet (I'm at a healthy weight, there was no reduction in calories, just an increase in protein and fat and a reduction in carbs, a low reduction, slightly above the recommendations for a diabetic), which the doctor recommended for PCOS. Both of these coincided correlated with a slight reduction in the anti-thyroid antibodies and a slight reduction in nodule size. My TSH levels have remained stable, so it was incorrect to say function, really just a reduction in the level of attack (but the thyroid levels are still high). The doctor that recommended surgery did so because "you're about to start college and you won't have time for monitoring, it will eventually fail. If we remove it now, you can just go on Synthroid and you'll never have to deal with the levels being out of whack." Yeah.... I was 18 then.... I'm now 27, but my Mom just went "NOPE!" and got a second opinion. This person was fine, but all he did was monitor to make sure the TSH levels stayed ok. They did, I just have a goiter and several nodules. The most recent endo. I've seen, who put me on intensive Vitamin D therapy and worked with me on the diet, felt like she was thorough (again minus completely dismissing the first celiac results. I think the D supplementation and diet were associated with a decrease (but obviously didn't and really couldn't reverse the outcome of the disease) in antibodies and nodule size because my TSH levels have yet to get out of whack. I also wonder if with fewer carbs, I ate less (thought still too much If I'm celiac) gluten, and that could have been more a factor in the correlation. Gemini- I'm glad that you have found a good treatment that keeps your levels where they need to be! I also really appreciate the welcome. Update: I have a referral to a GI specialist! I don't want to have Celiac... I love to travel, and I'm very social. I live in the US but my family is from Uruguay, South America, so I carry this Latin Cultural thing about loving to share food and seeing it as such a huge part of hospitality and community. I know that food in social settings gets hard to navigate...But I feel a sense of relief to think that I might have an answer to other health questions and that there is a way that I can stop or at least slow damage.

These can be sourced from various ingredients one being wheat. Please check with the manufacture of your products to figure out if they contain gluten or how they are made....and yes gluten in your makeup, and especially lotion, shower gel, etc is a huge issues. Consider this, gluten contamination can happen from gluten protein residue. How often would you touch your arms, hair, etc or use your hands and touch your food, plate, fork, spoon before putting it in your mouth? Do you bite your nails, sometimes pick up a mint or gum? Hate to say it this way but if you use gluten containing stuff like that shit will happen with cross contamination. Consider changing over to a dedicated gluten-free version of hygiene products and save your self the drama. I use EO products, The Seaweed Co, Savvy Naturals, Hugo Naturals, and Vaseline products products without issues personally.

I had an enlarged thyroid, but no nodules. Dr felt it and ultrasound confirmed. I had so many symptoms of hypothyroid- weight gain, fatigue, hoarse voice-couldn't yell or sing or swallow (still can't swallow, but mostly at the bottom end. Used to not be able to get it past my neck, either) brain fog so that I couldn't form a complete sentence or respond with any timeliness, cold all the time, etc. Dr was in his 70's and old school. He didn't do any further blood tests or anything. Just said to take iodine. So, I started taking iodine. By the next year, different dr, all my thyroid tests came back normal, it wasn't enlarged anymore and most of my symptoms were very much improved. Read "Iodine: Why you need it and can't live without it" Kinda boring and repetitive, but good info. Iodine Crisis by Lynne Farrow is also really good. (She talks more about breast cancer than thyroid. But, the iodine information & history is great.) https://www.amazon.com/Iodine-Need-Cant-Live-Without/dp/0966088239/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1493386200&sr=8-1&keywords=dr+brownstein+iodine+book

Ok can anyone please shed light on this subject! I been reading conflicting information. Do I really need to be concerned about products that contain these two ingredients in them like my face products and my body lotions and shower gels? If I'm not ingesting them can they really hurt me? Only been diagnosed for three weeks with celiac and I'm trying so hard to follow the guidelines but this seems to be a gray area. I also check on the list of unsafe ingredients and I don't see them listed there so whats the scoop? Safe or unsafe please help!!!!
