Whole Foods Is Recalling Pre-Packaged Salad Nationwide — Here’s Why
If you’re anything like me, then you could probably also benefit from adding more greens to your diet. Before you rush out to stock your fridges with vegetables and pre-packaged salads though, a new recall from Whole Foods will make you want to ensure that you’re checking the labels for allergens and ingredients before heading to the checkout line.
On July 11, 2023 Braga Fresh issued a voluntary recall on their 365 by Whole Foods Market Organic Asian Inspired 12-Ounce Chopped Salad Kit due to undeclared allergens on its packaging. The product, which is sold at Whole Foods locations nationwide, is being recalled because it contains incorrect condiment ingredients of milk and eggs that were not listed on the product label. Consumers who are allergic or sensitive to milk or egg are at risk of suffering severe and life-threatening reactions if either ingredient is consumed. Thankfully, no adverse cases have yet to be reported.
The recalled salads were shipped to Whole Foods Market stores throughout the United States and can be identified by having a UPC code of 9948246932, a Best If Used By Date of 7/16/23, and bear the Lot Code BFFS179A2. These affected products have since been removed from all store shelves.
For additional questions, customers can call 1-844-936-8255, and anyone who has purchased this product can bring their receipt into their local Whole Foods Market to receive a full refund.
