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.
