The recalled rainbow cake, in an 10 ounces Styrofoam tray with plastic wrap, code dated 7/8/12, UPC Code Number 5273500209, was sold in Nassau County, Suffolk County and New York County in NYS.
The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis of the product by Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of eggs in packages of rainbow cake which did not declare eggs as an ingredient on the label.
