    Our made-from-scratch sweet dough favorite is now available!

    Nutmeg, glazed fruit and raisins, finished with fondant icing…Hot Cross Buns are a seasonal favorite.

    Protestant England attempted to ban the sale of the buns by bakers but they were too popular, and instead Elizabeth I passed a law permitting bakeries to sell them, but only at Easter and Christmas…making them a seasonal favorite, quite literally!

    Did you know Colonial New York City hosted the first official St. Patrick’s Day parade in 1762, when Irish immigrants in the British colonial army marched down city streets? In subsequent years Irish fraternal organizations also held processions to St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The various groups merged sometime around 1850 to form a single, grand parade. St. Patrick’s Day is now widely celebrated in the United States…you’re sure to see lots of green this Sunday, March 17!

    Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods Announces Voluntary Recall of Gingerbread Man Cookies Due to Possible Undeclared Allergen


    Gary Larson        (804) 340-3196

    Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods LLC today announced that, out of an abundance of caution, it is voluntarily recalling specific production lots of Gingerbread Man Cookies that may contain an undeclared milk allergen.  These affected products are produced at the company’s plant in Richmond, Virginia and are sold through MARTIN’S Foods retail grocery stores in Richmond and Williamsburg, Virginia.  There have been no known reports of illness associated with the use of this product.

    The only affected products are those labeled with the Gingerbread Man (2oz.) product name and a sell-by date between 11/8/12 and 12/16/12.  This product name and sell-by date is found on the front of each package.  Products that carry any other names and sell-by dates are not affected by this recall. 

    The presence of an ingredient containing milk in a food product may cause an allergic reaction in people with milk allergies or intolerance to milk.

    In this instance the milk may have been present in the icing used to secure the bottom of the cookie to the package. 

    “The safety of our customers who eat our products is our first priority, and this is why we are voluntarily taking this precautionary measure,” said Mr. Robert S. Ukrop, President of Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods. 

    The company advises consumers who have allergies to milk to return affected product to the point of purchase. 

    Consumers with questions about the recall or the product involved may contact Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods, LLC at (804)340-3000.  Instructions will be provided on how to determine whether consumers have affected products and, if so, what to do with the recalled product. 

    Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods founded in Richmond in 2010, operates a Bakery, Kitchen, and a distribution center.
