Last week, the FDA announced that select Whole Foods stores in Northern California were recalling some Easter treats.
“Nine Whole Foods Market stores in Northern California are voluntarily recalling some decorated (iced) cookies from the self-service cookie displays because the products contained egg allergen that was not listed on the product sign,” the Federation noted on its website.
The worry is that consumers living with a severe sensitivity to eggs could run the risk of developing a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction to the goodies, if they ate them.
According to Whole Foods, all affected products have been removed from store shelves, which includes cookies that were “iced in the shape of eggs, bunnies or chicks and were available unwrapped in the self-service bulk cookie displays.”
The products were sold on or before March 25th, 2018 at the following stores, and one person has reported an illness in connection with them.
