WASHINGTON — A Pennsylvania company has recalled more than 1.1 million pounds of frozen pretzel hot dogs over concerns about misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.

“The products contain soy lecithin, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label,” a FSIS spokesperson wrote.

The recalled pretzel dogs were made between February 14, 2014 and November 14, 2014 and sold under the following brand names:

  • Auntie Anne’s All Beef Classic Pretzel Dogs
  • Auntie Anne’s Fundraising Pretzel Dogs
  • West Creek Black Angus Beef Pretzel Dogs
  • Kunzler Pretzel Dogs
  • Kunzler Turkey Pretzel Dogs
  • Berks All Beef Pretzel Franks
  • Nathan’s Famous Pretzel Dogs
  • City Line Foods Pretzel Dogs

“The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. or P-34073” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products produced were shipped nationwide for retail distribution and fundraising,” the FSIS said. “This recall does not affect Auntie Anne’s pretzel stores found in malls, airports and other venues nationwide.”

No injuries or bad reactions have been reported after someone ate these pretzel hot dogs.
