The company's Chantilly Key Lime Tartlets were pulled from stores in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island after a routine internal audit revealed that almond flour was missing from the product label, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

Additionally, the company's Kouign-amann pastries were removed from 35 stores around the country after a store member noticed the label failed to list eggs as an ingredient.

The Kouign-amann pastries were distributed to select Whole Foods Market stores in Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Texas and Utah, according to a separate FDA notice.

People who have a food allergy or severe sensitivity either almonds or eggs "run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction," the agency said.
