The state Department of Public Health on Wednesday warned consumers with soy allergies not to eat several of Glendora Quiche Company’s quiches.
They include: The five-inch “America’s Finest Gourmet Quiche" Lorraine, Broccoli, Spinach and Green Spinach with a date code before Sept. 2.
The parent company, AYOA, Inc. of Los Angeles initiated a voluntary recall of the various types of quiche which are sold primarily at Gelson’s Markets across the state, but which are mostly located in Southern California. The recall was initiated after CDPH identified the labeling omission of the soy allergen during a routine inspection. No illnesses have been reported at this time.
The products are packaged in individual clear cellophane wrap. They are five inches in diameter, with a circular label, green and gold print.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction that requires immediate medical attention should they consume these products.
Consumers who have experienced an allergic reaction after eating any of 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.
