JUST Egg Substitute Product Recalled


The Food and Drug Administration has recalled JUST Egg Chopped Spring Greens due to potential contamination with Listeria for which there is a zero tolerance by the FDA.  The Company has voluntarily recalled all lots as a precaution although no reports of illness have been reported.  The incubation period for listeriosis may exceed three weeks and concerning clinical signs may only be apparent in the elderly, the immunosuppressed and in pregnant woman.
