E.F.E.T. and in particular the Regional Directorate of Central Macedonia, while carrying out controls in the framework of the Program “Official Control for the presence of allergenic substances in certain types of food” for the year 2023, sampled food with data:
“VEGANO COOKIES, WITH OATS AND CAROBI” under the firm “VIOLANTA VEGANO VEGETABLE COOKIES”, with a minimum shelf life date of 13-05-2024 and batch number lot 051306, produced by the company “Violanda Biscuit Industry SA”, based at the 6th mile of Trikala – Karditsa.
The product was examined by the 2nd Department of the 1st Chemical Service of Athens of the State General Chemistry of AADE, where it was found that contained an allergenic substance (egg).
Because the product in question does not have an egg-related indication on the labelling, E.F.E.T. demanded the immediate recall of the entire specific batch of the above product from the internal market and the relevant controls are already underway.
Consumers who are allergic to egg and have already purchased the product are advised not to consume it.
