Veggie Noodle Co. has recalled its Cece’s brand Fresh Veggie Ramen with Chicken Broth due to the chance that the egg in it might be contaminated with listeria.
So far no one has reported getting sick from the ramen. The company decided to issue the recall after Almark Foods, the company they get their eggs from, issued a nationwide recall of all their eggs and egg products.
If you’ve purchased the Fresh Veggie Ramen with Chicken Broth, the company is asking that you throw it away or return it to the place for purchase for a refund.
