Whole Foods recalls mislabeled salad sold at 14 stores

Whole Foods Market Employees at natural foods grocer Whole Foods who work at least 30 hours per week are considered full-time and receive benefits paid by the company. Part-timers who work fewer than 30 hours a week also have access to the Whole Foods health plan, but they have to pay for the coverage themselves, says spokeswoman Libba Letton.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Salads made at a Whole Foods Market facility in Massachusetts and distributed to more than a dozen stores around the Northeast have been recalled because they were mislabeled and contain an egg allergen.

The company says 10-ounce packages of asparagus, pea and ricotta salad actually contained miniature asparagus, sun-dried tomato and Swiss frittatas.

People with egg allergies run the risk of serious or life-threatening reaction if they eat the salad. No illnesses have been reported. The salads were sold on April 10.

They were sold in Darien and West Hartford, Connecticut; Millburn, Middletown, Montclair, and Ridgewood, New Jersey; the Upper West Side in New York City; University Heights in Providence, Rhode Island; and Wellesley, Dedham, Hingham, Wayland and the Prospect Street and Fresh Pond stores in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
