Certain apple tartes sold at the West Hartford Center and Bishops Corner Whole Foods Markets, as well as the Glastonbury Whole Foods, are being recalled due to undeclared almonds, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
A notice on the FDA website on Monday, Dec. 1, states that “the 6 inch tarte was mislabeled as a ‘Tarte Aux Pomme 10in’ and has a ‘best by’ date between November 20 and December 1, 2014.” According to the FDA, the tarte contained almonds but that was not stated on the label, and consumption by those who have an allergy or sensitivity to almonds could result in a serious or even life-threatening reaction.
There have not been any reports of reactions or incidents resulting from consumption of the Tarte Aux Pommes, according to the FDA.
The tarte was sold at Whole Foods between Sunday, Nov. 16 and Friday, Nov. 28, 2014. There is currently signage in the stores notifying customers of the recall, and the products have been removed from the shelves.
If you purchased the recalled product from either of the Whole Foods Markets in West Hartford, or from the Glastonbury store, you may bring your receipt to the store for a full refund. If you have questions, contact your local store or call 617-492-5500 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
