Hy-Vee has recalled some of its prepackaged fresh food products due to label misbranding.

Company officials made the announcement in a press release Tuesday after discovering the liquid egg used to make the fried rice contains milk, which was not declared on the product label.

The voluntary recall includes seven varieties of Hy-Vee Mealtime Asian Entrees in 16-ounce or 20-ounce plastic containers. The products have expiration dates of Sept. 14, 2019, or Sept. 15, 2019, which can be found on the label on the top of the plastic lid.

Customers who purchased any of these products should dispose of them or return them to their local Hy-Vee store for a full refund, company officials said. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a health care provider.

The product was distributed to Hy-Vee grocery stores across its eight-state region of Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Below is a list of products that are being voluntarily recalled. The UPC and Lot Code can be found on the label on the bottom of the plastic container.
