Whole Foods Market inc.  is recalling mini 4oz. containers of pre-packaged Caesar and Mesclun Goat Cheese salads in response to an “undeclared allergen.”

According to Whole Foods and the FDA, several pre-packaged salads are being recalled due to mislabeling and a resulting undeclared allergen of fish and egg (Caesar) and tree nuts (Mesclun Goat Cheese).

The company says that the packages were sold in stores on July 8, 2014.

“The salads were erroneously swapped and therefore the Caesar Salad packages contain tree nuts and the Mesclun Goat Cheese packages contain a Caesar dressing containing fish and egg as an ingredient.””People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to any of these ingredients run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products,”  Whole Foods Inc. said in a recall statement.

According to the FDA the salads were sold throughout New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

Shoppers who have purchased the product from Whole Foods Market may bring their receipt to the store for a full refund.
