According to news sources, a consumer alert has been announced in regards to an undeclared allergen ingredient found in Gollo Brand “Pan Dominicano (Dominican Bread),” which can cause serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if consumed by people with a severe sensitivity to milk.
The company, Gollo Desserts, recalled the 7 oz. packaged product after an undeclared milk allergen was discovered in a routine random sampling conducted by the New York State Department of Agriculture. The packages contain 6 pieces of the recalled product and a UPC code 96321-00220.

As a San Francisco personal injury lawyer, I’ve seen many products being recalled due to improper labeling and understand the inherent risks associated with such recalls. I hope that consumers will learn more about the recalled product and be cautious of any known allergens that may not be identified on the product label. If you or a loved one has been injured through the use or consumption of a defective product, speak with a personal injury lawyer San Francisco to learn about the legal options available to you.
