Giant Eagle is voluntarily removing its Valu Time brand canned pumpkin purchased on or after August 30, 2011.
The move was announced Wednesday, just the day before Thanksgiving.
In a prepared statement, Giant Eagle said that while they are not aware of any immediate health concerns, they plan on working with Topco Associates to further investigate the situation and will notify customers if any further actions are warranted.
The grocery chain is encouraging people not to consume the products in any way.
Customers are invited to receive a full refund, complimentary pie, or replacement ingredients, from any area Giant Eagle supermarket.
