Flowers Foods initiated the TastyKake and Mrs. Freshley’s recall after discovering that certain pies contain soy. But the product labels don’t mention the allergen.

Soy allergies

The company hasn’t received any reports of illness or incidents to date. But people who are allergic to soy risk developing symptoms if they eat the Tastykake and Mrs. Freshley’s pies in this recall.

Soy allergies will cause symptoms similar to other food allergies. The most common ones include the following:

  • Tingling or itching in the mouth
  • Hives, itching, or eczema
  • Swelling of the lips, face, tongue, throat, or other parts of the body
  • Wheezing, nasal congestion, or trouble breathing
  • Abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting
  • Dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting

People with severe soy allergies can develop anaphylaxis, which can be fatal. Here are the signs and symptoms:

  • Constriction and tightening of the airways
  • A swollen throat or the sensation of a lump in your throat that makes it difficult to breathe
  • Shock with a severe drop in blood pressure
  • Rapid pulse
  • Dizziness, lightheadedness, or loss of consciousness

What you should do

Flowers Foods instructs customers to discard the Tastykake and Mrs. Freshley’s pies in this recall.

People who are not allergic to soy can still eat the pies safely. But storing products that contain undeclared allergens can be dangerous for other people in the household, including visitors.

People suffering from allergies will often check labels for allergens. They might eat the pies since the packages do not list soy.
