A New York company that makes vanilla rugelach sold in Maryland stores is recalling the product because it contains undeclared eggs, which may cause a life-threatening illness if consumed by anyone with an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs.

Bloch's Best Inc., doing business as Laromme of Monsey, N.Y., is pulling its Laromme brand vanilla rugelach because the 14-oz. round containers do not list eggs among the ingredients. The product was distributed in stores in Massachusetts, Maryland and New Jersey, according to the release posted on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website.

The company issued the recall after discovering that the packaging label did not mention eggs were used in the recipe. One illness has been reported so far, according to the company.

The rugelach comes in a clear plastic container with the Uniform Product Code, or UPC, 87062500954-8. Ten cases, with 18 containers in each, were distributed between Nov. 2 and Dec. 22.
