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.
