(WAFB) - A particular flavor of gelato sold at Whole Foods Market stores across the country is being recalled due to the undeclared presence of an ingredient.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made the announcement Nov. 22.

Whole Foods is recalling its Raspberry Cheesecake Italian Gelato because the dessert contains eggs, which aren’t listed on the label. People who have an allergy could have a potentially life-threatening reaction if they eat the product.

The FDA says the issue was discovered when a store employee realized some Butter Cookies and Sweet Cream Italian Gelato were mistakenly packed by the supplier in containers labeled for the raspberry cheesecake flavor.

Those with questions should call 1-844-936-8255 between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Monday through Friday or 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
