FIL-AM Specialty Foods Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Egg in Eggrolls

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, April 5, 1999 - FIL-AM Specialty Foods is recalling two flavors of "A 1 Tropical" brand Philippine style eggrolls, "Vegetable Lumpia (Plain)" and "Lumpia Vegetable with Shrimp", because they may contain undeclared egg. People who have allergies to egg run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products...

The recall was initiated after FIL-AM Specialty Foods was notified by O'Tasty Foods, Inc., City of Industry, California that the wrappers that they supplied, used to make the eggrolls, contained undeclared egg. Consumers who have purchased the products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (323) 225-6130 or (650) 873-6222.
