Bakery El Monte Sinai, a company located in Hempstead, New York, has announced the recall of their 10 ounce Rainbow Cake product. This item was sold in a styrofoam tray wrapped in plastic. It has a UPC number of 5273500209 and a date code of July 8, 2012.
The packaged cake, which was sold in three counties in the state of New York (Suffolk, Nassau, and New York counties), is likely to contain eggs that are not listed on the list of ingredients. People with allergies to eggs who consume the rainbow cake can have a severe reaction that might turn out to be life threatening. The issue was discovered by personnel at the Food Laboratory following a routine sample test by food inspectors with the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets.
It’s unclear exactly how wide this recall extends, but no matter how many people have bought the item, all such customers are being advised that they can return the cake to the store where it was bought for a full refund. They can also call the bakery directly with any additional questions they might have. There have yet to be any allergic reactions reported to the firm in conjunction with the consumption of the item.
