The Food and Drug Administration announced on May 6, 2015 an allergy alert on undeclared egg in Jamaican Style Shrimp and Soya Patties by the Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill of Bronx, NY. That company is recalling 6,188 cases of Shrimp and Soya Patties, Net Wt. 17.2 lbs, due to an undeclared egg allergen. 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 Shrimp and Soya Patties were distributed directly to Golden Krust stores in the Northeast, through a distributor for Golden Krust stores in FL and GA and three other distributors.
Product cases are marked on the side with the following expiration dates: 1/24/2015 through 2/26/2016. Each bulk case contains 50 individual frozen pieces lined with parchment paper.
Golden Krust has not received any reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing egg was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of the egg.
Consumers with known egg allergies who have any remaining aforementioned product with the expiry dates listed should not consume it, but rather discard it.
