The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall earlier this month for a brand of yogurt cups because of a labeling mistake. Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt’s press release stated that their Mango Greek Yogurt cups do not list eggs as an ingredient on the label, but they do contain eggs, according to BGR.
FDA Recalls Product
According to FDA, it was discovered that a few 16oz cups of Mango puree contained dark brown puree instead of the bright yellow puree that was supposed to be inside. Mango yogurt cups were found to be packed with pumpkin yogurt after a thorough internal investigation. The word “egg” is omitted from the Mango yogurt cup label.
An Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt of Federal Way, WA, product is being recalled on November 10th, 2021, due to the potential presence of an undeclared egg. If you’re allergic to eggs or have a severe sensitivity to them, you should avoid consuming this product in select retail locations in Oregon and Washington, Mango Greek Yogurt 16 oz. Cups were being sold. So far, there have been no reports of illness or death.
It is possible that you bought the yogurt that’s been linked to this recall if you see a clear plastic container with a blue foil seal on the front panel and blue lettering. UPC 8 57290 00612 6 and a “best before” date of November 28, 2021, are printed on the blue foil seal of the products of concern, as per Best Life.
Ellenos CEO John Tucker contacted the FDA, their distributors, and retail partners to inform them about the mislabel and notify them of an immediate recall of the 16oz Mango. The mislabeled product was quickly removed from the market due to their concern for our customers’ health and safety. According to the Food and Drug Administration, affected products should be disposed of or returned for a full refund if you have an egg allergy or sensitivity.
