The Rhode Island Department of Health shared photos of recalled King's Hawaiian products, Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2022.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The Rhode Island Department of Health said Tuesday that King’s Hawaiian is recalling pretzel slider and hamburger buns, as well as pretzel bites.

Joseph Wendelken, a spokesman for the Department of Health, said that the recall is because of Lyons Magnus, an ingredient in the products, potentially causing a microbial contamination.

No illnesses have been reported as of Tuesday, but the company is recalling the products to ensure consumer safety.

The Department of Health said that the products were sold at Walmart, Stop and Shop, and Target locations in Rhode Island.

Anyone that has any of the aforementioned products should throw them away.
