Consumer Alert - Undeclared Milk In Pound Cake

State Agriculture Commissioner Nathan L. Rudgers alerted consumers today that T & H Supermarket, Inc., d/b/a T & H Supermarket, 2502 86th St., Brooklyn, New York 11214 is recalling 4 oz. packages of pound cake due to an undeclared milk ingredient.  People who have allergies to milk may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The recalled pound cake comes in an uncoded, plastic-wrapped, tin package.  It was sold in Brooklyn, New York.


The problem was discovered as a result of routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis by the Department's Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of a milk ingredient in product packages which did not declare a milk ingredient on the label.


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


Consumers who have purchased pound cake should return it to the place of purchase.
