Cake Factory Outlet and Clearance Cake Excess have re-branded and re-labelled cakes, biscuits, sweets, puddings and tarts in an establishment served with a Hygiene Emergency Prohibition Notice due to unsatisfactory hygiene conditions.
A range of bakery products are reported to be mouldy, past their ‘best before’ date and contaminated as a result of rat infestation at the premises.
It has not been possible to obtain full distribution details or to be certain about the extent of distribution. The products are thought to be sold via market stalls across the north west of England, including markets in Clitheroe, Blackburn, and Manchester (Smithfields Market). Further investigations by the local authority are ongoing.
