According to ANI, there was a second complaint regarding Theobroma bakery in Noida Sector 104. A woman became sick after consuming a stale cake from the bakery.

Theobroma bakery is now under investigation as a sample of the pineapple cake has been sent to the laboratory. If the lab report confirms the product’s failure, legal action will be taken. The specific complaint mentioned that the cream of the stale cake had a sour taste.

Previously, a serious food safety concern gained attention when a 10-year-old girl in Punjab passed away from suspected food poisoning after consuming a cake purchased online. A sample of the cake was sent for examination, revealing a significant presence of a sweet-tasting artificial compound.
