Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

KFC Recalling Chocolate Cakes

In a nutshell: KFC’s chocolate cakes had no ingredient labels. People who are allergic to wheat flour, soy products, eggs, milk, and tree nuts could have allergic reactions.  

April 18, 2008–KFC Corporation is voluntarily recalling its Double Chocolate Chip Cakes because they contain eggs, milk, wheat, soy ingredients and possibly traces of tree nuts, and are not individually labeled with ingredient information.

The cakes are being recalled because people who have an allergy to eggs, milk, wheat, soy ingredients or tree nuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening reaction if they consume this product. There is no health risk for consumers who are not allergic to any ingredients in the product.

The recalled cakes were distributed nationwide at KFC restaurants.

The product comes in a round 16-ounce package with a black or clear plastic bottom and a clear plastic dome.

There is one reported allergic reaction to this product.

KFC will resume selling Double Chocolate Chip Cakes in the future after the product packaging has been modified to include ingredient information.

Here is the ingredient information for Double Chocolate Chip Cakes and all KFC products. 

Adobe Acrobat is required to read the ingredient info. Do yourself a favor and read it. There so many words that you cannot pronounce (chemicals) that it’s mind boggling and scary. 

Customers with these allergies who have purchased Double Chocolate Chip Cakes are urged to return them to a KFC restaurant for a full refund. Customers with questions can call 1-800-CALL-KFC.
