A company based in nearby Glendale has initiated a recall of a food product because of a potential undeclared allergen threat. Cake Decors Pastillage Flowers sold at Hobby Lobby and online are being recalled by Sugar Flowers Plus. The recall comes on the heels of a reported allergic reaction that the company states has not been proven to be had in conjunction with these specific products. However, Sugar Flowers Plus readily acknowledges that egg white wash was used as a sort of glue for these gumpaste flowers, and thus an allergic person could experience some sort of adverse event. In the reported case, the individual apparently suffered an itchy throat following consumption and stomach cramps upon taking benadryl.
