Another day, another recall. On June 30, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) posted a recall from Michael Foods Inc. located in Gaylord, Minnesota, stating that around 4,620 pounds of liquid egg products have been misbranded with undeclared allergens. The product contains dairy milk, a known allergen, which was not declared on the product.

The following liquid egg products produced on June 11, 2024, have been recalled due to the mislabeled packaging: 32-ounce paperboard carton containing “FAIR MEADOW Foundations WHOLE EGGS with CITRIC ACID” with the use-by date of “16 SEP 24” and lot code 4162G. This product is packaged within a corrugated case labeled Scrambled Egg Blend with the same use-by date and lot code.

The affected products have the establishment number “EST. G1455” inside the USDA mark, and they were shipped to restaurant institutions within Alabama, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina, and Utah. As of right now there are no reports of any allergic reactions due to this mislabeled recall.

This mislabeled product was discovered during an inventory evaluation when they discovered that an excess use of the company’s Breakfast Blend Scrambled Eggs were accidentally packaged as their Whole Egg with Citric Acid, which does not include this particular allergen warning.

While this particular product is not found in grocery stores, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service is concerned that this product is currently in restaurant/institution refrigerators, and they warn any restaurants in these nine states who buy this particular product to check the specific establishment numbers and the use-by date. If it matches, it should be tossed.

However, if you have liquid eggs at home from the grocery store, your product should be perfectly safe. You can still make your favorite scrambled eggs with those liquid eggs. Nevertheless, it’s always good to keep an eye on the labels of your grocery products, and to be careful of those allergen warnings so you can avoid anyone with particular allergies from getting sick.
