Eastland Food Corp. (Columbia, Maryland) is announcing a limited voluntary recall of a single lot of Euro Custard Cake because it contains an undeclared milk ingredient. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk run the risk of a serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume the affected Euro Custard Cake.

The impacted product is Euro Custard Cake with a best before of 5/25/2017 (UPC 8373724304), which consists of 12 cakes packaged together into a box (net quantity 7.20oz, 204g). The recalled product was distributed in Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, and West Virginia. No other states have been impacted.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis by Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of an undeclared milk ingredient on the label.

No confirmed illness has been reported to date. Eastland Food has informed the FDA of our actions.

Consumers who have an allergy to milk and are in possession of the affected Euro Custard Cake lot (best before: 5/25/17) are encouraged to dispose of it, and contact the company for a refund.
