"Bella Rosa," a brand of parmesean cheese exclusively sold at BJ's, is being recalled because some containers may not list eggs as an ingredient.

A New Jersey company is recalling 30,200 pounds of grated Parmesan cheese because it may contain undeclared egg allergen. Arthur Schuman Inc. is recalling its Bella Rosa Grated Parmesan cheese because the ingredient could cause a serious or life threatening allergic reaction to those with egg allergies or sensitivities, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

The cheese, which is sold exclusively at BJ’s Wholesale Clubs, is distributed in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Ohio.

Products that contain the undeclared allergen will have one of the following sell by dates: July 13, 2015, August 17, 2015 and September 10, 2015. The cheese is sold in 1.25-pound jars with sell by dates printed on the side of the jar just below the lid and will contain product code 088231410041.

No illnesses have been reported. Customers who have bought Bella Rosa Parmesan cheese can return it to any BJ’s Wholesale Club for a full refund. Any questions can be directed to Arthur Schuman at 973-787-8840.
