(SafetyAlerts) - Kwong Wah Cake Co. Inc., 210 Grand Street, New York, NY 10013, is recalling its ?Sponge Cake? because the product contains undeclared almonds. Consumers who are allergic to almonds may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The recalled ?Sponge Cake? is packaged in an uncoded, 2 oz., round, aluminum container with a clear, poly-film cover. The product was distributed locally in the New York City area.

The recall was initiated after an investigation by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors revealed the presence of almonds in "Sponge Cake" which did not declare almonds as an ingredient on the label.

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

Consumers who are allergic to almonds and purchased ?Sponge Cake? are urged to return it to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (212) 431-9575
