Recall: Krunchi Cake Rusk Original, Cake Rusk Soonfi and Cake Rusk Egg Free


Krunchi Foods Ltd, from Walthamstow, London, is recalling three of their Cake Rusks due to incorrect packaging.

Most do not state the allergens contained within the Rusks, nor do they have nutritional guidelines. They also contain colourings for which warnings should be in place.

Krunchi Cake Rusk Original does not contain nutritional guidelines nor mentions the allergens it contains.

Therefore, all 283g packs of Krunchi Cake Rusk Original are being recalled, regardless of best before dates and batch codes.

Krunchi Cake Rusk Soonfi also does not contain nutritional guidelines nor mentions the allergens it contains. Besides this, it also contains Sunset Yellow (E110) which is one of the 'Southampton six colours' (sunset yellow FCF (E110), quinoline yellow (E104), carmoisine (E122), allura red (E129), tartrazine (E102), ponceau 4R (E124). These colourings are shown by scientific research to be linked to increased hyperactivity in some children. Some countries have banned the Southampton six colours in food altogether. In the UK, there is strict guidance as to their use. This includes a clear notice on the food product that the colouring 'may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children’. This warning is not given on these Rusks.

Therefore, all 283g packs of Krunchi Cake Rusk Soonfi are being recalled, regardless of best before dates and batch codes.

And last but not least, Krunchi Cake Rusk Egg Free actually does seem to contain ...egg - the actual allergen it is meant to avoid..

And like the other Rusks, this supposedly Egg Free Cake Rusk does not contain nutritional guidelines nor mentions the allergens it contains. And it also contains not only Sunset Yellow (E110) but also tartrazine (E102), two of the Southampton six colours, without the warning that they may have an adverse affect on activity and attention in children.

Therefore, all 283g packs of Krunchi Cake Rusk Egg Free are being recalled, regardless of best before dates and batch codes.
