Quality Plus Products, Inc. Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Eggs in Smoked Wild Salmon Spread
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- November 29, 2007 -- Quality Plus Products, Inc., of Bellingham, Washington is recalling its 7 ounce packages of "Jackson's Quality Plus Smoked Wild Salmon Spread" because the top ingredient label does not mention eggs however; it is listed on the side label of ingredients. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled "Jackson's Quality Plus Smoked Wild Salmon Spread" products were distributed in retail stores located in Northwestern Washington. The product comes in 7 ounce, clear plastic containers, with an ingredient label on the top lid and an ingredient label on the side with SELL BY dates up to and including 01/15/08 stamped on the side of the container.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem. The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the egg-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of eggs on the top ingredient label. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's labeling process.
Production of the product has been suspended until FDA and the company is certain that the labels have been corrected. Consumers who have purchased 7 ounce packages of "Smoked Wild Salmon Spread", without the ingredient Horseradish on the top lid, are asked to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (360) 734-1275.
