MC Retail Foods Recalls Marie Callender's Breaded Fish with Macaroni and Cheese and Broccoli Florets Dinner

Omaha, Neb. (SafetyAlerts) -The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that MC Retail Foods is recalling the 12-ounce packages of Marie Callender's Breaded Fish with Macaroni and Cheese and Broccoli Florets Dinner because it may contain undeclared egg whites. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to egg whites run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. However, the product is safe for persons who are not allergic to egg whites.

The product is distributed nationwide through retail stores.

The product is packed in a 12-ounce paperboard carton marked with the following production codes: 14 E1206, 14 F1206, 14 G1206, and 14 H1206. The production code is located on the side panel in the consumer information box.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the product containing egg whites was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg whites. Subsequent investigation revealed that the problem was caused by the company using a macaroni product for these production codes that did not match the product's ingredient statement.

Production of the product has resumed utilizing a macaroni product that does not contain egg whites.

Consumers who have purchased the 12-oz. package of Marie Callender's Breaded Fish with Macaroni and Cheese and Broccoli Florets, UPC 21131 50711, with these production codes, and are allergic to egg whites, are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
