Unlisted Milk Allergen Causes Los Olivos Pan de Torta Recall
Detection of the presence of undeclared milk allergens in 16 ounce packs of “Pan de Torta” has forced Los Olivos, a company based out of Farmingdale, New York, to recall said product with a lot number of 50912.
The item, which comes in a plastic package, was distributed through Hicksville-based Queso la Ricura to the states of New York and New Jersey. Numerous other distributors were responsible for its availability across the rest of the country.
The milk allergens, which were not listed on the label, were discovered by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors personnel conducting basic testing. Workers with the Food Laboratory confirmed their findings. It’s possible that someone could have an intense reaction if they consume the product but are allergic to milk. Although no incidences of a severe allergic reaction in conjunction with consumption of the product have been reported, purchasers are nevertheless being advised to return the item to the place where it was purchased for a full refund.
As a personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles, I’m sorry to once again see a product not properly labeled. This might seem like a small thing to some, but such faulty labeling could have serious health consequences to those with allergies. It’s my hope as a Fresno personal injury attorney that the issue gets taken care of before anyone has to suffer any ill effects.
