Cuisine Solutions is voluntarily recalling it’s JUST Egg flavored plant-based “bites” products, due to undeclared allergens, including the possibility they contain eggs.

The Food and Drug Administration says the Virginia-based company is recalling the products because a limited number of two-pouch retail packages may contain an incorrect sealed pouch containing whole-egg and milk products. The FDA says interior plastic pouches are properly labeled to distinguish the products.

“People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk or eggs run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products,” the FDA says in a press release.

The products being recalled are plant-based and made to mimic an egg-based product.

The 8.4-oz. recalled packages have “best before” dates from FEB-22-2022 to APR-09-2022, according to the FDA. The “best before” dates are located on the back of the package.

The FDA says more than 80,000 boxes have been distributed nationwide. Officials say only one incorrect pouch has been identified at this time, and no adverse reactions have been reported.

“Cuisine Solutions is working with all distribution and retail partners to remove any potentially impacted products. Consumers may return for a full refund any incorrect packaging that contained the incorrect product to the retailer where they were purchased,” the company said in statement.

Consumers with any questions may contact Cuisine Solutions at 1-855-735-7540 or via email at Recall@cuisinesolutions.com.
