According to the recall notice, issued in conjunction with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Lyons Magnus is recalling this ingredient due to the potential for it to cause microbial contamination, including from the organisms Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum.

The company also confirmed that no pathogens have been detected in any King’s Hawaiian’s products to date.

In addition, King’s Hawaiian stated it will “resume producing all pretzel products once the company has ensured all current product has been disposed of and has confirmed the safety of all ingredients.”
