Certain Whole Foods Market stores in the Mid-Atlantic region are voluntarily recalling batches of chocolate croissants because the product contains eggs and the ingredient was not declared on the product packaging.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

This recall only applies to Whole Foods Market stores in the company’s Mid-Atlantic region, which includes 51 stores located throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, Kentucky, New Jersey, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

The recalled products were made and packaged in-house in clear plastic containers in counts of six. Each product also had a white label on top of the package that included the product name “Chocolate Croissants 6 pk,” UPC 0248422008994, and sell-by dates on or before Nov. 5, 2016.

All affected product has already been removed from store shelves, and no adverse reactions have been reported to date, according to the recall announcement.

Customers who have purchased this product can bring the item or receipt into the store for a full refund. Store locations and hours can be found here. Customers with additional questions can contact the Whole Foods Market Mid-Atlantic Regional Support Office at 301-984-4874.
