Baker in Vegan/Gluten Dispute Recalls Products

The baker who was suspected of supplying a Huntington shop with items marked gluten-free and vegan that weren’t actually meeting those standards has recalled her products.

In Februrary, the baker, Savory Fig of Patchogue, had supplied CindySnacks with items, including a donut with sprinkles that resembled a Dunkin’ Donuts product. John  Stengel, co-owner of Cindysnacks, which specializes in vegan products,  posted a photo of a donut that was decorated with sprinkles that he suspected came from Dunkin Donuts. CindySnacks has since moved to Centerport.

The state agriculture department said on its website, “The Savory Fig is working alongside the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets and is voluntarily recalling their manufactured baked items out of an abundance of caution due to a possible undeclared wheat gluten, soy, and/or milk allergens that may appear in their baked products including their DONUTS, CLASSIC FROSTED ROLLS, MATCHA CINNAMON ROLLS, MAPLE PECAN OAT SCONES, AND BLACKBERRY CRUMB MUFFINS.  People who have a severe sensitivity to these allergens may possibly run the risk of serious or life-threatening reactions if they consume these products. No illnesses have been reported to date.  If you purchased these items and have a sensitivity to any of the allergens stated above, we recommend you discard the items immediately.”

The recall was first reported by Newsday.
