Whole Foods Recalls Apple Cinnamon Hand Pies for Undeclared Egg

Thirteen Whole Foods Market stores in the states of Arizona, California, and Nevada have recalled packages of “APPLE CINNAMON HAND PIES.” The U.S. Food & Drug Administration reports that these baked goods may contain eggs, which were not listed on the product labeling.

The hand pies affected by the recall were packaged in plastic containers stamped with the PLU number 23646100000 and “Best By” dates of October 15, 2017 or earlier. They were sold at stores in Phoenix, AZ, La Jolla, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Oxnard, CA, Sherman Oaks, CA, Thousand Oaks, CA, Torrance, CA, Venice, CA, Henderson, NV, and Las Vegas, NV.

People who are allergic to eggs run the risk of potentially life-threatening illness should they eat these hand pies. The packages should be either disposed of or returned to their place of purchase, along with a receipt, for a full refund.

It’s important to note that while many people start showing the symptoms of allergies in childhood, allergies to any type of food or object can begin at any time of life with no warning. Allergic reactions can range from mild to severe.

Mild symptoms of an allergy include a strange taste in the mouth, tingling of the mouth, lips, and tongue, sneezing, an itchy mouth, itchy ears, redness of the skin, a rash, and a cough. More severe symptoms can include difficulty swallowing, shortness of breath, turning blue, wheezing, and swelling of the tongue, lips, and/or throat that blocks breathing. Anyone experiencing these symptoms should be taken to urgent care or an emergency room.
