According to a press release from the Food and Drug Administration also known as the FDA, David’s Cookies is recalling 960 units of “Marketside Chocolate Chip Explosion Cake” with the lot # BS23212. this cake has been sold in Walmart stores all across the country.
The recall is due to a labeling and packaging problem that is being investigated. These cakes are recalled due to the fact that they are actually “Marketside Ultimate Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake” but they were mislabeled as “Marketside Chocolate Chip Explosion Cake”. Even the title of the cake does not depict that peanuts are a key ingredient. There is also no warning on the label that the product has peanuts to alert people who have a severe peanut allergy.
This cake is in a 7-ounce, clear plastic package marked with lot # BS23212 on the top of the package.
David's Cookies along with Walmart, have blocked both of the Marketside Ultimate Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake and Marketside Chocolate Chip Explosion Cake from their stores in an effort to make sure consumers are not able to purchase either of these products until they investigate and correct the situation.
