Cake Sold at Wal-Mart Poses Allergy Threat

Cake Sold at Wal-Mart Poses Allergy Threat

Federal health officials state cake slices sold in Wal-Mart stores could pose serious allergy risks to some individuals.

The Food & Drug Administration state that “David’s Cookies” is recalling more than 950 units of its 7 oz. “Marketside Chocolate Chip Explosion Cake” with lot # BS23212.  The product was sold in Wal-Mart stores across the country.  The recall was issued after 960 units of “Marketside Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake”, were mislabeled as “Marketside Chocolate Chip Explosion Cake,” according to the FDA.  Because the label does not list peanuts as an ingredient AND it doesn’t declare any peanut allergen warning, federal regulators fear that the product may pose a risk for all those with a peanut allergy.

No illnesses or injuries have been reported to the FDA, with the connection to the recalled product.  If you have a peanut allergy and consume the recalled product, you ARE advised to contact a physician immediately.  If you’ve purchased the recalled cake slices, you’re encouraged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.

If you have any questions – you can call David’s Cookies at 800-500-2800 between 8:30am and 5:00pm Eastern (EST).
