Allergy alert issued on Member’s Mark Mozzarella Sticks
Published 10:31 am Thursday, July 27, 2023
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued an allergy alert on one brand of mozzarella sticks sold in Kentucky and four other states because they could contain egg and soy, and that information does not appear on the product label.
As a result of the alert, Rich Products of Buffalo, N.Y., is recalling 15 cases of Member’s Mark Breaded Mozzarella Sticks because they may contain undeclared egg and soy. People with an allergy or severe sensitivity to egg or soy risk serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume these products.
The recall was initiated after the company discovered that an incorrect raw material was used during the manufacturing process, which resulted in egg and soy being added to the product. Egg and soy do not appear in the ingredient listing on the package.
