By  | 

American Pie is recalling 1,440 cases of Marie Callender Turtle Pies because of elevated amounts of bacteria.

The pies were sold in Pennsylvania and 15 other states.

The company says the pies were on hold due to a bacterial count that was higher than company standard -- then they were accidentally shipped from a warehouse.

None of the bacteria are pathogens, but the company warns that eating the pies could lead to gastrointestinal illness, nausea, or vomiting. No illnesses have been reported.

The pies were sold in Kroger, Giant Eagle and Hy-Vee supermarkets in 15 states. They were sold in: Virginia, Ohio, Texas, West Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Maryland, Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota.
