Lara’s Bakery Issues Multiple Recalls

( – An FDA report indicates that bakery products from Lara’s Bakery 3 LLC in Marshalltown, Iowa, are being recalled due to the presence of unmarked sesame seed, coconut, soy, wheat, milk, and egg.

These products include Panque, Pan Surtido, and Pan de Racho. Consumption of these goods might cause severe or fatal allergic reactions in those with severe or life-threatening allergies to eggs, soy, wheat, sesame seeds, milk, or coconut.

Pan de Racho, Panque, and Pan Surtido were distributed in Iowa and Wisconsin by direct delivery to retail stores. Each bag of Pan de Racho—which has sesame seeds and bright pink stripes—comes with its own label and is packaged in an airtight plastic container. Each panque is packaged and labeled in a transparent plastic bag. Tres Leches, Chocoflan, and Flan are all packaged in see-through containers with descriptive labels. Pan Surtido items are in metal trays.

As of yet, no illnesses have been recorded. The goods in question will remain unavailable until Lara’s Bakery verifies the issue has been resolved.

Products with wheat, sesame, soy, coconut, milk, or egg allergens were delivered in packaging that did not indicate the inclusion of these ingredients, prompting the recall. Retail outlets in Iowa and Wisconsin have already received the merchandise.

Refunds may be obtained by having consumers return the recalled products to the facility at 701 N 3rd Ave Suite C, Marshalltown, IA, 50158, or by calling (641)752-0152.

Around a dozen states have been impacted by food recalls announced in December by federal agencies.

Due to several concerns, the FDA and the Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service recalled a variety of consumable items in the first two weeks of December, including noodles, tea, cantaloupe, and many more.

Several widely-distributed cantaloupe items were recalled in November. After several reports of illnesses, the FDA issued a warning about salmonella infections in different batches of whole and chopped cantaloupes.
