South El Monte, California, U.S.A.-based food manufacturer 888 Food Company is recalling certain of its fish ball and fish cake products because they may contain undeclared eggs.

The recall was initiated after the company received a consumer complaint of anaphylactic reaction, the company said in a press release.

“Through investigation, it was determined that the formulation of an ingredient was changed to include eggs,” 888 Food Company said.

The recalled products were primarily distributed in California to distributors and retailers, along with some retailers in the U.S. states of Indiana and Illinois.

The recall includes: Ho King Fish Ball, Ho King Fried Fish Ball, Giai Phat Fried Fish Loaf, Giai Phat Fried Fish Cake, Giai Phat Fish Ball, Giai Phat Fried Fish Ball, Giai Phat Featherback Fish Ball, Giai Phat Fried Featherback Fish Ball, Giai Phat Shrimp Ball, and Giai Phat Cuttle Fish Ball.

Consumers who have purchased the products being recalled will be issued a full refund upon return of the recalled product or products to the retailer from which they were purchased.
