FDA warns – KALO Single Slice Carrot Cake recalled due to mislabeling, undeclared soy

Consumers should be advised that Stokesdale, North Carolina-based KALO Foods, LLC has recalled its Single Slice Carrot Cake (under Universal Product Code 8 53407 00418 4) because the product has been found to contain soy, an allergen not listed in the label’s ingredient panel.

Officials first took action on March 5, 2024, after it the product, which, while identified by nearly all cake-testers as Carrot Cake, was distributed in packages with ingredient statements for the Chocolate Cake.

Those who live with an allergy or sensitivity to soy are advised that they could experience a major, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the mislabeled product.

KALO Foods, LLC first became aware of the problem on March 1, 2024, when one customer reported receiving a Carrot Cake product with the mismatched ingredient panel.

It has since been determined that affected products bear the label for “Single Slice Gluten Free Carrot Cake” and the ingredient panel for “Chocolate Cake,” as shown in the product photo attached to the FDA announcement.

The recall covers products that were distributed and made available

While no reports of illness related to the mix-up have been made to date, anyone who may have purchased an affected product is asked to either discard the item or take it back to the point of purchase for a complete refund.

Further questions may be directed to company representative Michael Cusato, Monday through Saturday, from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

The FDA continues to oversee the recall.
