Krispy Kreme has put out a recall of doughnuts in eastern Iowa. Krispy Kreme corporate spokesman Brian Little says a piece of equipment that broke Thursday may have put bits of aluminum into some cake doughnuts made at the company’s Davenport bakery. There was a problem with a mixer, he says, and some people called the company’s national hotline to say they’d found a “foreign substance” in some of their doughnuts.
The franchise store in Davenport provides doughnuts that are sold at convenience stores and wholesale distributors in eastern Iowa. Just two people reported finding metal pieces in food items — one in Davenport and one in Cedar Rapids.
The company is telling people to discard any of the cake doughnuts made by that supplier on Thursday of this week. No one has reported any injuries from the batch of doughnuts, according to Little.
