Lincoln Park, MI—Pierino Frozen Foods Inc. has recalled 24 oz. packages of “Jumbo Shells with Cheese” due to undeclared eggs in the product that could pose a health hazard to consumers. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) http://www.fda.gov states, “People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.” The FDA announced the product recall on Wednesday, February 3, 2010.
The 24 oz. packages of “Jumbo Shells with Cheese” were reportedly sold in retail stores in Michigan, West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Colorado, Texas, Kentucky, North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida.
