TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Publix announced a recall of its holiday cookie platters.

According to a statement released by the grocery store chain, the cookies made by George DeLallo Co. Inc. could have undeclared pecans, posing a danger to anyone with a pecan allergy.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the pecan-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal pecans' presence. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's packaging processes.

The cookies were used on the Publix Bakery 20 oz. Holiday Cookie Platters.

They were sold in stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.

The recall does not impact the cookies sold in Florida locations in Miami-Dade, Palm Beach Broward, and Monroe.

The cookies come in a clear plastic 20 oz. container with UPC 4141588690 and lot number W34326 and a best-by date April 10, 2021.

If you have cookies that have been recalled, you can return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

If you have any questions, call 1-800-433-9100 or 724-925-2222.
