(Before It's News)

 Water Lilies Food Inc. in Astonia, NY establishment, Tuesday recalled approximately 1,710 pounds of egg rolls due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The product contains shrimp, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label. Additionally, this item was mislabeled as pork egg rolls, when in fact, shrimp egg rolls were packaged.

The shrimp egg roll item was produced on July 12, 2016. The recall involves:

  • 15-oz. (425 g) boxes containing five pieces of “World Menu Egg Rolls Pork” with a best by date of 07-12-2017, a packaging date of 07-12-2016 and a UPC code of 6-88267-06951-2.

The product subject to recall bears establishment number “EST. M21465A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. This item was shipped to a distribution center in Westfield, Mass.

The recall  resulted from  a consumer complaint when a customer bought egg rolls (pork) and then discovered the shrimp.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased this product are urged not to consume it. This product should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website.
