Dessert bar recalled due to undeclared egg

Lemon Dessert Bars are being recalled because of undeclared egg due to a packaging error.

Schwartz Brothers Bakery of Seattle, WA has announced to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that it is recalling 24 units of Lemon Dessert Bars, which have the sell-by date of 09/21/19, because it may contain undeclared egg.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that some of the Lemon Pound Cake, which contain egg, were mislabeled as Lemon Dessert Bars. The Lemon Dessert Bars label does not declare egg.
