Bakery products maker Flowers Foods Inc. (FLO) late Monday announced that it voluntarily recalled certain brands of Bar-B-Q bread, citing that they may contain undeclared milk.

The recalled products include limited quantity of Sunbeam, Bunny, Flowers Deli, And Ingles Bar-B-Q Bread sold in retail stores in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, And Tennessee. Less than 3,000 loaves of bread are involved in the recall.

The company said it is in the process of recovering the product involved and is in contact with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to ensure the continued safety of those consumers who may be impacted by this issue.
