Poppies International announced a dessert recall late last year that covered various types of cream puffs products. The company detected the presence of metal during production. That’s why it issued the recall. More than two weeks later, Poppies International expanded the recall to include even more cream puffs that weren’t recalled the first time around. Certain Taste of Inspirations Crème Puffs might also include metal, so you should stop eating them immediately if you have any.
The initial desserts recall
Poppies International said in the initial recall announcement that various Delizza cream puffs produced between December 7-10, 2021 might contain metal fragments. The desserts were available in multiple states from various stores, including Costco, ShopRite, PriceRite, and Safeway.
Here’s a list of products from the initial recall:
- 120ct Cream Puffs distributed to select Costco locations in Northern California as well as Carson City and Sparks, Nevada.
- 30ct Cream Puffs distributed to select Safeway locations in Northern California.
- 30ct Chocolate Enrobed Cream Puffs at select ShopRite and PriceRite locations in the following states: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island.
These are the lot codes your should be looking for:
- Choc Enrobed 30 ct (400g) – UPC 6 76670 00402 2; Lot codes L1J5021 and L1K5021; Best Before Date 06/09/2023
- Cream Puffs 30 ct (375g) – UPC 6 76670 00107 6; Lot codes L2N5021 and L2O5021; Best Before Date 06/10/2023
- Cream Puffs 120 ct (1.5 kg) – UPC 6 76670 00800 6; Lot codes L32E5021 and L32F5021; Best Before Date 06/07/2023
The cream puffs recall expansion
Poppies International issued a new press release this week to expand the desserts recall on the same grounds. Metal fragments may be hiding inside certain cream puffs, making them dangerous to eat.
The company added the Taste of Inspirations Crème Puffs 30ct container (UPC 7 25439 99597 9; Lot code L2I5021; Best Before Date 06/08/23) to the list.
Poppies International manufactured the dessert during the same period, December 7-10, 2021. As was the case before, the company says that small metal fragments might be present in these cream puffs. You should avoid consuming them if you still have any packages at home.
The Taste of Inspirations cream puffs in the expanded recall were available in Hannaford locations in New York. Since they’re frozen and can last in a freezer for many months, there’s a good chance that affected boxes are still in some homes.
What you should do
The company says that no injuries have been reported so far. But you should still avoid eating the product.
If you still have any of the cream puff packages mentioned in the recall, you should either throw them out or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
