Glenn Wayne Bakery of Bohemia, NY recalled Chocolate Iced Donuts, Boston Cream Donuts, Brownies and Walnut Brownies out of an abundance of caution because of a potential foreign material hazard in its icing which can cause serious injury if swallowed. These products were distributed to New York... See More State’s Westchester, Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island, Nassau, Suffolk, Dutchess and Rockland counties in retail stores. All products were pulled from shelves immediately upon notice. There have been no reported injuries to date.

The recalled products are Chocolate Iced Donuts, Boston Cream Donuts, Brownies and Walnut Brownies. Donuts were packed into paper-lined trays for self-service; donuts were made on 12/15/22, and no lot information is available on trays once placed on display. Brownies came in a 3.5-ounce, clear plastic package marked with a best by date of 12/18/22 on the bottom.

The recall was the result of a consumer complaint of glass in the donut icing, which was later proved to be unfounded (i.e., confirmed to be sucrose) by a food forensics laboratory. The company has ceased using the icing and as a result of the food forensics laboratory’s investigation, considers the matter an isolated and closed incident.

If you have the recalled products in your home, please do not eat them, throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.

In case you experienced harm from extraneous materials, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve issues and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance.
