Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Kokosh Cakes are subject to this recall:

  • Oberlander Gluten Free brand Chocolate Kokosh Cake, sold in 16 ounce, clear plastic packages with a wraparound label. They are marked with a last-date sale code of April 30, which is printed on the back of the label and further identified with a UPC of 43711 18093 7.

According to the FDA, this recall was initiated after an unconfirmed report of an allergic reaction was investigated by Orthodox Baking Co. After investigation, it was found the Almond Paste-containing cake was distributed in packaging that identified in the ingredient as “Kernel Paste” rather than “Almond Paste”. The problem was apparently caused by a labeling error limited to this particular item.
