FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - March 24, 2011 - Mai's Bakery, Inc. of Monterey Park, CA. is recalling its listed “Hopia Mongo” and “Moon Cake” products because they may contain undeclared egg. People who have allergies to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled packages of “Hopia Mongo” and “Moon Cake” products were distributed in Southern California and Utah Supermarkets. The products come in an 8 and 6 ounce, clear container and/or styrophone plate wrapped in clear plastic marked with Mai's Bakery sticker.

After March 23rd 2011, we will discontinue using eggs in these Moon Cake & Hopia Mongo products.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the egg containing products were distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by mislabeling in the company's packaging process.

Productions of the products have been suspended until the FDA and Mai's Bakery are certain that the problem has been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased “Hopia Mongo” and “Moon Cake” products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Mai's Bakery at 626.307.9629, between the hours of 8am–6pm, Sun-Thur, PST.
