Warning against eating five varieties of Mexican pastries
Submitted By Anita Gore
On March 26, California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Director Dr. Ron Chapman warned consumers with milk allergies not to eat five varieties of Del Castillo Foods Mexican pastries:
La Campana Panaderia Ð Conchitas (Sea Shells)
La Campana Panaderia Ð Cemitas (Sweet Rolls)
La Campana Panaderia Ð Cuernitos (Horns)
La Campana Panaderia Ð Novias (Brides)
La Campana Panaderia Ð Chilindrinas (Crystal Sugar Shells)
Del Castillo Foods of Lodi 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 pastries 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.
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. Anyone observing the products being offered for sale is encouraged to call CDPHÕs toll free complaint line at (800) 495-3232.
