Dufflet Pastries is recalling its plant-based chocolate cake from the marketplace containing eggs which were not declared on the label.
They advise anyone with an egg allergy to avoid eating the cake, as it can cause a serious or potentially fatal reaction. According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), all recalled cakes must be discarded or returned to the store where they were purchased.
So far, an allergic reaction to the cake has been reported, the CFIA said, adding that the recall was triggered by a “consumer complaint.” They said the cake would be taken off the market.
Dufflet Pastries has two branches in Toronto and Etobicoke, Ontario, but the cake was distributed nationally across Canada.
The company’s chocolate cake was advertised as having no artificial flavors or preservatives and did not contain any animal products.
The CFIA has declared that it has a UPC code 6 24122 00700 8.
