About Egg Allergies:
For some people, foods made from egg (or egg ingredients) may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from these products. Examples of foods with hidden egg include ingredients such as “albumin”, “binder”, “emulsifier” or “lecithin”. These components (and many more) are likely derived from egg protein and thus can cause serious allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to egg ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center.

If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.

Whole Foods Curried Salad Recall [US]

United StatesUS/Cambridge: Whole Foods Market recalls some Bulk Curried Chicken Salad and Bulk Vegan Curried Chick’n Salad due to undeclared egg and soy, both known allergens. FDA: http://ht.ly/kU4l7

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm351564.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports that in some Whole Foods Market stores these recalled Salads may have been sold with reversed identification labels.

According to the FDA, the Curried Chicken Salad and the Vegan Curried Chick’n Salad were sold between 5/7/13 and 5/8/13 in the cold salad bar section of the following 15 Whole Foods Market store locations:

  1. Darien, Connecticut

About Egg and Soy Allergies:
Foods made from egg and soy ingredients may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from either of these products. Examples of foods with hidden egg include ingredients such as “albumin”, “binder”, “emulsifier” or “lecithin”. These components (and many more) are likely derived from egg protein and thus can cause serious allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.

Similarly, many foods have soy-based ingredients including edamame (soybeans in pods), hydrolyzed soy protein, miso, soy protein isolate, soy sauce, tamari, tempeh, teriyaki sauce, textured vegetable protein (“TVP”) and tofu. In addition, lax labeling laws in many countries allow manufacturers to use (but not declare) small amounts of soy in “artificial flavoring”, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, vegetable broth and others. Although levels of these allergens are comparatively small, they may cause dangerous allergic reactions, including Anaphylactic Shock. It is not uncommon to react to more than one allergen at once.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to egg or soy ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call-9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
