— Price Chopper is issuing a recall for its store-brand coconut custard pies due to a labeling issue that left out known allergens.

The 8- and 10-inch pies have UPC numbers 41735 23713, 41735 23721 and 41735 22453 and were sold after Aug. 11, according to a news release today from the supermarket chain. They contain milk, egg, soy, wheat and tree nut (coconut).

Other than this labeling issue, the product is safe for consumption for those not allergic to the above ingredients, the chain said.

Pies can be returned to a local Price Chopper for a full refund. For more information, visit or call 1-800-666-7667, option 3, Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Price Chopper has also initiated its Smart Reply notification program, which uses purchase data and consumer phone numbers on file with the company’s AdvantEdge card to alert any households that may have purchased the pies. All customers who purchased the product except for one have already been contacted using this system, the company said.

This is a case of over-regulation. How many people would have been affected? And how many of those would actually read the label? And what would they have done without the law? Too many laws leads to disregard of the law.

For a product sold after Aug 11 (2 months ago), how many are still in existence? I say they have all been consumed!

Its not over-regulation if Price Chopper is issuing the recall themselves. Instead it is a display of responsible business practices (however unlikely a bad outcome may have been).

Small-government folks constantly tout self-regulation as a preferable solution to gov't regulation, so perhaps we should see this as a good thing?
