News Release February 15, 2008
La Familia Bakery in San Antonio is recalling all of its packaged products because some of them contain nuts, milk and other allergens that are not listed on the packages.
Texas Department of State Health Services officials believe that product distribution was limited to convenience stores in the San Antonio, Pearsall and Devine areas.
The recalled products include cookies and Mexican sweet bread, or pan dulce. They are sold in clear, twist-tied, plastic bags that contain the company name.
Standard ingredients labeling on the product packages indicates that the products contain water, flour, sugar, cinnamon and shortening. But DSHS officials said some of the product labels should have listed pecans or other nuts, milk, eggs, wheat, soy and FD&C Yellow #5, a food coloring.
Anyone who has one of the recalled products should not consume it if they are allergic to any of these ingredients.
Federal and state food manufacturing regulations require that food product labels include the product name, the company's name and address, the net weight, an ingredients listing and the source of major allergens.
