CDPH Warns Consumers not to eat Hollywood Bakery and Pacific French Bakery brand Cema de Canela (Cinnamon Round Loaf)

SACRAMENTO – Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and state health officer, today warned consumers with sensitivity to FD&C Yellow Number 5 food coloring not to eat Cema de Canela (Cinnamon Round Loaf).

Ngu Corporation (DBA: A-1 Best Food) of Montebello, California, is voluntarily recalling cinnamon round loaves sold at Los Angeles area 99 Cent and Food 4 Less stores.

The voluntary recall was initiated after CDPH determined, during a routine inspection, that Ngu Corporation did not identify FD&C Yellow Number 5 (also known as tartrazine) in Cema de Canela’s product label ingredients statements. No illnesses have been reported at this time.

The products are packaged in 10-ounce and 12-ounce clear plastic bags. They can be identified by “Best Buy” dates on or before November 23, which are printed on the plastic tie. (Click on Ngu Corporation Cema de Canela [Cinnamon Round Loaf] to see recalled product photos).

People who have a severe sensitivity to FD&C Yellow Number 5, particularly those with asthma or an aspirin intolerance, are at risk of serious adverse reactions when they consume FD&C Yellow Number 5.

People who have experienced an adverse/allergic reaction after consuming these products should contact their health care provider. Anyone observing the products being offered for sale is encouraged to call CDPH’s toll‑free complaint line at (800) 495-3232.
