Cake design, which is the art of decorating cakes, is a traditional activity in the United States and Great Britain and has been fashionable for some time in other European countries such as Italy, where it is becoming increasingly widespread. However, several recent studies have shown that the labelling for colourings used to decorate cakes does not indicate an expiry date or bear any translation in the language of the country in which they are sold, thus preventing consumers from ascertaining the ingredients and the level of risk if they are ingested by children.
Could the Commission answer the following questions:
Is it aware of these products?
What action will it take if the labelling of colourings does not comply with the obligation to show an expiry date and a translation in the language of the country in which they are sold?
