Publix Recalls Jalapeño Bagels Because Breakfast Shouldn’t Include Eating Glass Or Stones

If you live in the southern United States and love yourself a spicy breakfast bagel you might want to reconsider your morning routine. Publix grocery store is recalling its store-brand jalapeño bagels, because, you know, bagels shouldn’t come with shards of glass or small stones.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, affected bagels were distributed to Publix stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

The bagels are sold in self-service bins and artisan cases in the grocery stores’ bakery department. It was unclear just how many bagels were suspected of having glass or stones in them.

Officials with Publix say they learned of the potentially hazardous bagels through a supplier.

“As part of our commitment to food safety, potentially impacted product has been removed from all affected bakery departments,” Maria Brous, Publix media and community relations director for Publix, said in a statement.

So far there have been no reports of injury or illness as a result of the recall. Consumers who purchased the bagels are urged to return them to their local store for a full refund.
