Salads made at a Whole Foods Market facility in Massachusetts and distributed to more than a dozen stores around the Northeast have been recalled because they were mislabeled and contain an egg allergen.

The company says 10-ounce packages of asparagus, pea and ricotta salad actually contained miniature asparagus, sun-dried tomato and Swiss frittatas.

People with egg allergies run the risk of serious or life-threatening reaction if they eat the salad. No illnesses have been reported. The recalled product (UPC Code 0 36406 30344 5) contains frittatas and has a "sell by" date of April 14, 2016 and was sold on Sunday, April 10, 2016 at fourteen Whole Foods Market locations:

They were sold in Darien and West Hartford, Connecticut; Millburn, Middletown, Montclair, and Ridgewood, New Jersey; the Upper West Side in New York City; University Heights in Providence, Rhode Island; and Wellesley, Dedham, Hingham, Wayland and the Prospect Street and Fresh Pond stores in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Consumers who purchased the salads can return them for a refund.
