The Mac & Cheese at This Popular Grocery Store Is Being Recalled
A recall of macaroni & cheese products from Whole Foods has been announced by the FDA due to undeclared egg. Stores in five states sold the macaroni, and if someone with an allergy or sensitivity unknowingly consumes it, there could be a risk of a serious or life-threatening reaction.
This recall involves Whole Foods locations in Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. and includes these prepared meal kits with a Whole Foods Market label:
- Rotisserie Chicken Meals with Mac & Cheese and Broccoli
- Fried Chicken Meal with Mac & Cheese (packaged and on the hot bar)
- Chicken Rustico Romano Chef Plate with Mac & Cheese and Broccoli
- Chicken Breast Chef Plate with Mac & Cheese and Broccoli
- BBQ Turkey Meatballs Chef Plate with Mac & Cheese and Green Beans
- Roasted Turkey Chef Plate with Mac & Cheese and Broccoli
The meals were available both hot and cold. The recalled mac & cheese also could have been picked up from the chef's case counter, or selected during an online Whole Foods Market order. Product codes and best by dates on the packaging can be found on the FDA's website here. The product is not on store shelves anymore, Whole Foods says.
Anyone who purchased one of these products is encouraged not to consume it and bring a receipt to a Whole Foods location for a full refund. There is no information about any illnesses linked to the recall or how it was discovered.
This isn't the only recall at a popular grocery store recently. This Trader Joe's Seafood Is Being Recalled in 19 States.
