WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Whole Foods Market is recalling two salads sold in stores throughout New York due to incorrect labels, which could lead to dangerous food allergy reactions, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
The recalled items are the mini 4-ounce containers of prepackaged Caesar salad and Mesclun goat cheese salad sold in stores.
The labels fail to declare the possible allergen of fish and egg in the Caesar salad and tree nuts in the Mesclun goat cheese. The product has a sell by date of July 11. The recall was issued Tuesday.
The products were sold at most Whole Foods stores in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
Whole Foods has Westchester locations in White Plains, Port Chester and Yonkers.
The salad labels were erroneously swapped and therefore the Caesar Salad packages contain tree nuts and the Mesclun goat cheese packages contain a Caesar dressing containing fish and egg as an ingredient.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to any of these ingredients run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
Signs are posted in the Whole Foods Market stores to notify customers of this recall, and all affected product has been removed from shelves.
Consumers who have purchased this product from Whole Foods Market may bring their receipt to the store for a full refund. Consumers with questions should contact their local store or call 201-567-2090 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
