FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- New York -- July 16, 2004 New York State Agriculture Commissioner Nathan L. Rudgers today warned consumers to avoid eating El Dorado Bakery brand "Pan Tostado (Toasted Bread)" and "Salpora De Arroz (Rice Cookies)" due to an undeclared milk protein, an allergen to milk sensitive consumers.

These products are being recalled by El Dorado Bakery Corp., 467 Greenwich St., Hempstead, NY 11550. The El Dorado Bakery brand "Pan Tostado (Toasted Bread)" are packaged in an 8 ounce styrofoam tray in cellophane wrap and is coded "JUL 27 2004." Both the split top and flat top style of toasted bread are involved in this recall. The El Dorado Bakery brand "Salpora De Arroz (Rice Cookies)" are also packaged in an 8 ounce styrofoam tray in cellophane wrap and is coded "JUL 27 1004." The products were distributed to retail stores in New York, Long Island, and Connecticut.

Routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets food inspectors revealed the products contained milk protein, not declared on their labels.

Undeclared milk protein can cause a deadly reaction in individuals with sensitivity to it.

Consumers who purchased El Dorado Bakery brand "Pan Tostado (Toasted Bread)" and "Salpora De Arroz (Rice Cookies)" should return them to the place of purchase.
