AUBURN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — There's trouble in the candy aisle just weeks before Halloween, as a wholesale distributor based in Auburn recalls its 15-ounce packages of candy corn because they may contain egg in them, without said ingredient on the nutrition facts.

This presents a problem, as people with allergies to egg are at risk of a serious, even life-threatening, reaction should they consume these altered products from Arcade Snacks.

The United States Food and Drug Administration carried Arcade Snack's announcement of the recall, listing the following as stores who purchased said snacks:

  • Johnson Roadside Farm Market in Swansea, Massachusetts
  • Donelan’s Supermarkets in Massachusetts
  • Fieldstone Farm Market in Marion, Massachusetts
  • Foodies in Massachusetts
  • Windfall Market in Falmouth, Massachusetts
  • Highland Park Market in Glastonbury, Connecticut

Officials say the candy corn with possible egg came in a clear plastic container marked with the universal product code of "#0 18586 00114 4," with a best by date of March 8, 2023.
