Allergen Alert: Eggs in Rugelach

Bloch’s Best of Monsey, NY,  is recalling vanilla rugelach that was distributed to retail stores in Massachusetts, Maryland and New Jersey because the pastry may contain undeclared eggs.

There’s been one report of illness connected to the mislabeled rugelach.

The recalled Laromme brand Vanilla Rugelach comes in a 14 oz. round, clear plastic container with the UPC 87062500954-8. Ten cases of the mislabeled product, with 18 containers each, were distributed between Nov. 2 and Dec. 22, 2011.

According to the recall notice, the problem was caused by a supplier’s change in the label, which did not reveal that egg was an ingredient.

The company says the label has now been corrected to properly identify all ingredients, including any allergens.

Consumers may return the recalled Laromme Vanilla Rugelach for a refund. For more information contact the company at 845-352-8811 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
