Allergy Alert Issued For “ASSI” Brand Korean Cake

Posted on December 14, 2011

According to news sources, an allergy alert has been issued for “ASSI” branded Korean Cake (Gyeong Dan) after it was discovered that the product included an undeclared egg ingredient.

The company, Rhee Bros., announced the allergy alert after a random sampling of the product conducted by food inspectors in New York discovered the existence of the undeclared egg ingredient. Consumers with an allergic sensitivity to eggs risk severe to potentially fatal allergic reactions if they consume the product. The cakes come in 8 ounce packages and have an item number printed 20649D on the label.

Consumers with the product should stop using it immediately and return it to the point of purchase for a full refund. For additional information, contact the company at 1-410-381-9000.

As a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer, I urge you to be mindful of threats from food related illnesses. If you have purchased a product that has been identified as a potential risk, return it to your place of purchase and contact the distribution company. If you’ve consumed a contaminated product and are experiencing symptoms, I encourage you to seek medical attention. If you’ve been seriously injured by eating food product, I urge you to contact a Los Angeles product liability lawyer to learn about your legal options.
