Semita de Piña Recalled Due to Undeclared Allergen

Posted on November 23, 2011

According to several news reports, the Rio Grande Imports Inc. has issued an allergy alert recall for Semita de Piña (pastry filled with pineapple jam) due to undeclared dairy among the ingredients.

All consumers who happen to have a serious allergy or some type of sensitivity to milk and derivatives are urged to make sure they will return the product immediately. The FDA released the announcement after the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors took a routine sampling. A conclusive analysis has demonstrated that the presence of the allergen was a reality and the product was being distributed without stating the ingredients properly.

The product is packed in clear plastic overwrap, the name El Triunfo is printed on the package and the code of the recalled item is 11-22-11. News articles also stated that so far, there haven’t been any illnesses reportes regarding the consuming of the recalled products.

As a Los Angeles wrongful death attorney I hope that this post has made readers all over the U.S. aware that undeclared allergens can be a great risk. We must be aware of the hazards posed by certain products whenever consuming any food product.

For the case of an eventual personal injury case related to the consuming of a contaminated food item that may have harmed you in any way, don’t hesitate in contacting the personal injury lawyer in California that will help you to get the justice you deserve.
