QualityPlus Products, Inc., of Bellingham, Washington is recalling its 7 ounce packages of "Jackson's Quality PlusSmoked Wild Salmon Spread" because the top ingredient label does notmention eggs however; it is listed on the side label of ingredients. People whohave an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious orlife-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

Therecalled "Jackson's Quality Plus SmokedWild Salmon Spread" products were distributed in retail stores located in Northwestern Washington. The product comes in 7 ounce,clear plastic containers, with an ingredient label on the top lid and aningredient label on the side with SELL BY dates up to and including 01/15/08stamped on the side of the container.


Noillnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem. Therecall was initiated after it was discovered that the egg-containing productwas distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of eggs on thetop ingredient label. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was causedby a temporary breakdown in the company's labeling process.
