Voluntary Recall for Easter Cookies Containing Eggs

Easter cookies often come in the shape of an egg. It makes total sense! But a mislabeled batch of cookies has a sweets company in Silver Lake, California, in hot water after adding eggs to their product without posting it on the label.

People who have "an allergy or a severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these cookies," the Food and Drug Administration said in a statement. "The cookies are safe for consumption by those who do not have egg allergies."

No reported illnesses—to date—have been associated with this recall.
