SEATTLE — Gourmondo Co. of Seattle is recalling “Asparagus & Feta Sandwiches,” net weight 11.04 oz/313 g with best-bv dates of 6/5 and 6/7, due to undeclared egg, an allergen.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to egg run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

Affected Gourmondo Co. “Asparagus & Feta Sandwiches” were distributed in Washington to Metropolitan Market stores on June 1 and June 3. This product has the Gourmondo label and wrapped in cellophane, UPC Code: 859266007984. 

No illnesses have been reported to date regarding this issue.

During a routine inspection, state officials discovered that a printing error on the stickers for the “Asparagus and Feta Sandwich” did not contain the sub ingredients for “mayonnaise,” one of which being whole eggs. Eggs were also omitted in the list of allergens on the mislabeled stickers.

Only 21 sandwiches were affected by the error; the company said it is reporting this issue and recalling any product that may remain in inventory due to an "over-arching belief in safety and transparency." As of June 9, all affected products should show a “best-by” date of, or prior to, that date and should already be slated for disposal.

Customers with an egg allergy or sensitivity who have purchased the affected product are urged not to consume the product and dispose of it or return it to their place of purchase for a full refund.
