California-based Del Castillo Foods announces recall of all five varieties of its Mexican pastries due to undeclared milk
March 27, 2014
– California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Director Dr. Ron Chapman today warned consumers with milk allergies not to eat five varieties of Del Castillo Foods Mexican pastries:
* La Campana Panaderia - Conchitas (Sea Shells)
* La Campana Panaderia - Cemitas (Sweet Rolls)
* La Campana Panaderia - Cuernitos (Horns)
* La Campana Panaderia - Novias (Brides)
* La Campana Panaderia - Chilindrinas (Crystal Sugar Shells)
Del Castillo Foods of Lodi, California, is voluntarily recalling all five varieties because they contain milk that is not declared on the product labels. The recall was initiated after CDPH identified the labeling omission during a routine inspection of the facility. No illnesses have been reported at this time.
The Conchitas, Cemitas, Cuernitos, Novias, and Chilindrinas are packaged four pieces to a bag. The clear plastic bag is labeled with the following brand name, La Campana Panaderia and has a net weight of 11 ounces. Product photos can be viewed on the CDPH website.
Del Castillo Foods has segregated its inventory and is notifying consumers not to eat these products if they have a sensitivity to milk allergens. Consumers that have the recalled products should return them to the place of purchase. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, which requires immediate medical attention.
Consumers that have experienced an allergic reaction after consuming any of these products should contact their health care provider. Anyone observing the products being offered for sale is encouraged to call CDPH's toll free complaint line at (800) 495-3232.
