Marie Callender Turtle Pie Recall

American Pie LLc is recalling 1,440 cases of Marie Callender Turtle Pies, because of elevated amounts of bacteria.

The company says the pies were on hold due to a bacterial count that was higher than company standard when they were accidentally shipped from a warehouse.

None of the bacteria are pathogens, but the company warned that eating the pies could lead to gastrointestinal illness, nausea, or vomiting. No illnesses have been reported.

The pies were sold in Kroger, Giant Eagle and Hy-Vee supermarkets in West Virginia, Ohio, Texas, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Maryland, Nebraska and South Dakota.

The recalled pies have a UPC code of 12781 10280 and a production code ending in 143. Only pies with production codes ending in 143 on the package are included in the recall.

    I know what they're saying. I ate a turtle pie just the other day, and it had all kinds of pieces of the shell in it. Yuk!
