Sara Lee recalls bread because of metal pieces

Fri Jul 27, 2007 8:56AM EDT

CHICAGO, July 27 (Reuters) - Sara Lee Corp. (SLE.N: Quote, Profile, Research) is recalling bread sold under EarthGrains, Sara Lee Delightful Wheat and several other brands because the loaves may contain small pieces of metal, the company said.
In a news release on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Web site dated Thursday, Sara Lee said the the bread subject to recall is sold in Mississippi and Alabama, most of Arkansas, far southeastern Missouri, western Georgia, southwestern Tennessee, southeastern Louisiana and the panhandle of Florida.

The packages are stamped with "best if purchased by" dates of July 25, 2007 through Aug. 7, 2007 and include the code "222." The bread was produced at the company's Meridian, Mississippi, bakery.

The bread should not be consumed and should be returned to the store where it was purchased for a full refund, Sara Lee said.

A Sara Lee spokesman could not be reached for further comment.

A list of the affected brands is available in the press release at .

FDA posts press releases and other notices of recalls and market withdrawals from the firms involved as a service to consumers, the media, and other interested parties. FDA does not endorse either the product or the company.
