But the owner of the bakery isn't happy that his most popular product has lost out on its prize topping.
Rich Myers, director and founder of Get Baked bakery in Leeds, told CNN he had been using the sprinkles since opening the business in July.
Myers said he bought the offending sprinkles from a UK wholesaler, and said he had no idea there was any issue until West Yorkshire Trading Standards visited the business on September 30.
"I thought it was a joke at first, I thought it was someone pulling a prank," he said on Thursday.
"It's quite an intimidating process really, being interviewed by Trading Standards. It's not something you expect to happen when you run a little bakery."
The situation has led to jokes and puns in the UK, with the saga spawning social media posts about #sprinklegate on Thursday.

There is no reason why high costs must continue to keep people from finding solutions to life problems that hinge on access to legal services. Ryan Nabil is a research fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C, and a former Fox Fellow at Sciences Po in Paris.
Myers was using the sprinkles in a raspberry-glazed doughnut cookie, which he said is the most popular cookie on the bakery's short menu.
"They're one of the best selling items," he said, adding that the ban has been tough for business. "It's not easy and it's not ideal."
For now the bakery has swapped the sprinkles for icing sugar.
"British sprinkles just aren't good enough, they're just not worth using," said Myers. "Until I can find a sprinkle that's legal that is worth using we'll just continue to use something else."
In a statement sent to CNN, West Yorkshire Trading Standards confirmed they had advised the business that the use of E127 is not permitted in this type of confectionery item.
"We stand by this advice and would urge all food business operators, when seeking to use imported foods containing additives, to check that they are permitted for use in the UK," the statement added.
