Damascus Bakery, based in Newark, N.J., has submitted a voluntary recall for a production batch of its Bantam Classic bagels due to “an incorrect item placed in the carton with an undeclared egg allergen” according to the FDA website.

The specific item – which has been recalled by the bakery itself as well as Publix, Winn Dixie and other major grocery chains – is the “Classic Mini Stuffed Bagel”, which is, as the name suggests, a mini bagel stuffed with whipped cream cheese. All recalled products would be labeled with an expiration date of May 27, 2023, printed on the left side of the carton and on the top of the bag.
The risk with this mislabeling runs for those who may have severe egg allergies and could face a reaction if they mistakenly consume it. As of the date of publication, no illnesses related to this product recall have been reported. If you have any product from this lot, you are advised to discard it and contact Bantams Bagels Customer Service for a replacement. For more information, click here.
