Undeclared Eggs in “Mexican Bread (Assorted)”

New York State Agriculture Commissioner Patrick Hooker today alerted consumers that Guadalupana Bakery Corp. of 308 Ellery Street, Brooklyn, New York, is recalling certain packages of “Mexican Bread (Assorted)” because they may contain undeclared eggs.   Consumers who are allergic to eggs may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The “Mexican Bread (Assorted)” is packaged in 16 ounce clear plastic bags and is uncoded.   The product was distributed throughout the five boroughs of New York City.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets’ food inspectors and subsequent analysis by the New York State Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of eggs in “Mexican Bread (Assorted),” which did not declare egg as an ingredient on the label.

No illnesses or allergic reactions involving this product have been reported to date.  Consumers who have purchased Guadalupana Bakery Corp.’s “Mexican Bread (Assorted)” are urged to discard the product or return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
