Whole Foods Market has to recall a food product due to a mislabeling. The Asparagus, Pea and Ricotta Salad sold at Whole Foods Market has been recalled for an undeclared allergen in one of their salads. Whole Foods Market will be recalling all ten-ounce containers of the Asparagus, Pea and Ricotta salad because it contains eggs that are not listed on the label. The Asparagus, Pea and Ricotta salad is produced in Everett, Massachusetts, at the Whole Foods Market North Atlantic Kitchen. Undeclared eggs in a product place people who have an allergy to eggs at risk of an allergic reaction. To date, no illness have been reported. The recalled salad is the Asparagus, Pea and Ricotta Salad, UPC Code 0 36406 30344 5, and "sell by" date of April 14, 2016. The product was accidentally sold last weekend at fourteen Whole Foods Market locations. Whole Foods Market is offering a full refund to consumers who have purchased this product. Customers can call their local Whole Food Market with any questions.
Researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies. On average one out of every 13 children are affected by food allergies. Any consumer that experiences an allergic reaction due to mislabeling or improper food handling should be held accountable for their negligence. An allergic reaction can cause serious illnesses and death. Companies and manufacturers are to be held accountable and responsible for the improper handling of food or mislabeling of undeclared allergens. Thousands are killed every year when food companies ignore or are negligent with FDA regulation.
