Publix holiday cookies in 7 states recalled due to undisclosed pecans

Shopping at Publix might be a little bit less of a pleasure this holiday season, as they recently announced a recall on their 20 oz. Holiday Cookie Platters, sold in 7 southern states. The recall stems from included but undeclared pecans. If you’re a Publix customer with a pecan allergy and you consume said cookies, it could result in a serious or life threatening allergic reaction.

20 oz. Holiday Cookie Platters

UPC code 41415 88690


The undeclared pecans were the result of, as Publix explains, “a temporary breakdown in the company’s packaging processes”. The recalled cookies were distributed to Publix stores in 7 states: Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida. In Florida though, the holiday cookie recall does not apply to cookies sold in Publix stores in Miami-Dade, Palm Beach, Broward, or Monroe counties.

So far, no illnesses or injuries have been reported. If you’re allergic to pecans and purchased the recalled holiday cookies, you should return them to your local Publix for a refund.
