KFC-brand chocolate chip cakes recalled

Apr 21, 2008

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of KFC-brand double chocolate chip cakes because of a labeling error.

The FDA said the KFC Corp. of Louisville, Ky., is voluntarily recalling the cakes because they contain eggs, milk, wheat and soy and possibly traces of tree nuts, not listed as ingredients, thereby posing a health risk for people allergic to such foods.

The recalled cakes were distributed nationwide at KFC restaurants in round 16-ounce packages with a black or clear plastic bottom and a clear plastic dome.

Consumers can return the cakes to a KFC restaurant for a refund or call the company at 800-225-5532 for further information.
