More Cakes Recalled Due to Plastic Fragment Concern

Price Chopper Supermarkets is recalling two sizes of its bakery’s Central Market Classics Tres Leches cakes – the 5 inch, UPC 41735-26013, and the 8 inch, UPC 41735-25128.

Rich Foods, the manufacturer of the sponge cake layers contained in these cakes, notified Price Chopper that they may contain plastic fragments. Rich Foods recalled the cake about two weeks ago, saying small plastic fragments were shredding from defective packaging.

In a news release, Price Chopper said that although these specialty cakes have been available in stores since July 10, 2011, no plastic fragments or consumer injuries have been reported.

The chain said it is also alerting consumers to the recall through its Smart Reply notification program, which uses purchase data and consumer phone numbers on file in connection with the company’s AdvantEdge (loyalty) card.

The cakes may be returned to local Price Choppers for a full refund. For more information, visit the pricechopper.com website or call Price Chopper at 1-800-666-7667, option 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
