Cuisine Solutions is recalling its JUST Egg "bites."
Sous vide plant egg "bites" from JUST Egg don't normally contain dairy, but a limited number of the two-pouch packages may have "an incorrect sealed pouch containing whole-egg and milk products," according to a recall notice posted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
More than 80,600 boxes were distributed nationwide, and people with allergies or sensitivities to eggs or milk who unknowingly consume them could experience "a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction." Thankfully, "only one incorrect pouch has been identified at this time and there have been no adverse reactions reported," per the notice.
Cuisine Solutions says it's working with its retail and distribution partners to pull any impacted products from the marketplace. "Consumers may return for a full refund any incorrect packaging that contained the incorrect product to the retailer where they were purchased," it adds.
This isn't the only recall you need to know about right now. Here are a few other products to double-check in your kitchen pantry:

Freshpet Select Small Dog & Bite Size Beef & Egg Recipe Dog Food sold at Target and Publix.
This dog food was recently recalled because it may contain Salmonella—and it's not only a threat to your pets. "Salmonella can affect animals eating the product, and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products," the recall notice says.
The 1-pound bags were shipped to Publix grocery stores in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina, as well as Target stores in Arizona and Southern California from June 7 to 10.
Banner Smoked Fish just added 42 more products to its recall list.
In early June, Banner Smoked Fish recalled 42 varieties of smoked fish after the FDA found "unsanitary conditions" in a food plant in New York that could lead to Listeria monocytogenes contamination. A few weeks later, 42 more products were pulled from shelves in a total of 20 states.
Several Costco products are also being recalled.
A few recalls have plagued Costco's warehouses in the last few weeks. The most recent is a recall of Don Lee Green Chili Shredded Chicken & Rice Cauliflower Bowls because they may contain plastic. The bowls were sold between May 22 and June 15, 2021.
In addition, three Clio Snacks frozen treats were pulled from freezers because they "may contain very small metallic fragments" from a piece of production machinery equipment, according to the manufacturer. They were sold as early as February 2021.
