Walmart stores across the country are recalling certain cake slices due to an undisclosed allergen, presenting potential health dangers for some consumers, as advised by federal health authorities.
David's Cookies initiated a recall when they discovered that 960 of its Marketside Ultimate Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake slices were mistakenly labeled as Marketside Chocolate Chip Explosion Cake slices, as per the statement from the FDA.

Consequently, the label on these cake slices "does not depict peanut as a key ingredient and does not declare the peanut allergen warning on the label," the recall announcement read.
The CDC states that peanuts fall into the category of eight foods or food groups that lead to the majority of severe allergic responses in the US.
Allergic reactions vary in symptoms and intensity from person to person. In extreme cases, individuals might experience anaphylaxis, a rapid and intense allergic response that can be fatal, as mentioned by the CDC.
As of now, there have been no reports of illnesses or injuries related to the recalled items, based on the recall information. Nevertheless, it's recommended that concerned customers consult with a doctor.
These items were packaged in 7-oz., transparent plastic containers, labeled with lot # BS23212 on the top.
Both David's Cookies and Walmart joined efforts to halt the distribution and sale of the Marketside Ultimate Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake and Marketside Chocolate Chip Explosion Cake at their distribution points and at the checkout, ensuring no one could buy the items "until further investigation and resolutions have been completed."
The distribution center of Walmart responsible for sending out the wrongly labeled cakes has been pinpointed. The collaboration between the two companies will persist to stop additional deliveries to outlets, as the statement further added.
