ENGLEWOOD,N.J. — Unilever is recalling more than 6,000 pouches of teriyaki noodles that may contain eggs not listed among the product's ingredients.
People with egg allergies and those with a severe sensitivity to eggs could have serious or life-threatening reactions if they were to eat the Lipton Asian Sides noodles, Unilever said in a statement Tuesday.
The company said that no adverse reactions have been reported.
Unilever said the recall was instituted because noodles with egg may have been inadvertently used during a production switch to noodles without eggs.
The recall affects pouches marked with UPC 41000-02802 and "Best if Used By" codes of Aug 31 05B, Sep 01 05B, Sep 02 05B, Sep 04 05B, Sep 05 O5B, Sep 09 O5B, Sep 11 O5B Sep 12 O5B, Sep 13 05B, Sep 14 05B Sep 15 05B and Sep 16 05B.
The pouches were distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
Consumers are asked to return the noodles to stores for full refunds or call Unilever's toll-free hot line at
