The Food and Drug Administration in the United States has recalled patties produced by US-based Jamaican company, Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery and Grill.

The recall reportedly affects more than 6,000 cases of shrimp and soya patties.

According to the FDA, the patties are being pulled because of an undeclared egg allergen.

It says the patties were distributed to Golden Krust stores in the northeastern United States – including the states of Florida and Georgia.

The FDA says persons who have allergies or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if the patties are consumed.

The product cases are marked on the side with the expiration dates January 24, 2015, through to February 26, 2016.

Golden Krust says to date there has been no report of adverse reactions connected to the patties.
