UNDECLARED NUTS, DAIRY AND EGGS IN SEDEF BAKERY PRODUCTS

 

(SafetyAlerts) State Agriculture Commissioner Nathan L. Rudgers today warned consumers sensitive to eggs, pistachio nuts and milk protein not to consume Baklava, Sesame Sticks, Assorted Cookies and Kurupasta manufactured by Sedef Bakery Inc., 3564 Nostrand Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11229. The products contain undeclared pistachios, milk, butter and eggs.

The products are packaged in various size, unlabeled, foil and plastic containers. They were sold in retail stores in the Brooklyn, New York area and on Long Island.

A routine inspection of the bakery by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets food inspectors revealed the unlabeled products contained pistachio nuts, milk, butter and eggs.

The consumption of products containing these allergens by allergic individuals has been reported to elicit severe reactions. Life-threatening anaphylactic shock can occur in certain sensitive individuals upon consumption of products containing these allergens.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

Consumers who have purchased Baklava, Sesame Sticks, Assorted Cookies and Kurupasta manufactured by Sedef Bakery Inc. should return them to the place of purchase
