Undeclared egg ingredient results in recall of Goraesa fish cakes

People who are allergic to eggs should not eat the Goraesa brand fish cakes that may be in their refrigerator.

According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), the product is being recalled because it may contain egg, which was not declared on the label.

“If you have an allergy to egg, do not consume the recalled products as they may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction,” the CFIA said in a recall notice issued Friday.
