October 16, 2001Awrey Bakeries Issues Allergy Alert on
Undeclared Walnuts in "Carrot Sheet Cake 40 Cut (Nut Free)"
Livonia Michigan (SafetyAlerts)
- The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that Awrey Bakeries is
Carrot Sheet Cake
40 Cut (Nut Free), sold through it’s Livonia Outlet Store because it may
contain undeclared walnuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity
to walnuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if
they consume these products.
This is the first public notice of
recall issued by the FDA.
The recalled Carrot
Sheet Cake 40 Cut (Nut Free), was distributed only through Awrey’s Outlet
Store located at 12301 Farmington Road, Livonia, Michigan. The cake in
question was available for sale from Thursday October 11, 2001 through
Saturday October 13, 2001.
The product is a 12x16 Sheet Cake in a corrugated tray that is wrapped in a
poly film. The lot number 015801 appears on one side of the corrugated tray.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this product.
The recall was initiated after a customer complaint that walnut containing
product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of
walnuts. Subsequent investigation indicates that as many as 17 Carrot Sheet
Cakes may have been mislabeled.
Consumers who have purchased any of these cakes are urged to return them to
the Outlet Store for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the
company at 1-734-513-4260. This product is being recalled in cooperation
with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
