Thomasville- Under the final settlement, Flowers Foods will donate one million dollars in cash and 1.5 million dollars in products to charitable organizations.
The nationwide lawsuit stemmed from a case in which the company included non-Kosher ingredients in its Kosher pie shells. The Orthodox Union was not told about that practice, and did not approve of it.
Flowers no longer manufactures pie shells, and the plant that made the ones in question has closed. The company is based in Thomasville.
