A mix-up in chicken and vegan salad labeling at some locations of Whole Foods Market Inc. has lead the company to issue a recall, the Associated Press reported.

The supermarket chain announced Thursday that the labels on chicken salad and vegan salad were switched in their cold food bars at some Northeast locations, sending health officials on the lookout for allergic reactions.

Specifically, 15 stores from Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York were mislabeling the curried chicken salad as vegan curried "chick'n" and vice versa. The salads are being recalled.

With the vegan salad meant to be a soy product and the chicken salad carrying egg, according to the Food and Drug Administration, this could mean people with allergies to soy or egg are put at risk of severe, even fatal reactions as a result of mislabeling.

However, Whole Foods is saying that they have not received reports of people falling ill.

The incident started when a commissary that the company owned and assigned to tag the product mislabeled the salads, Libba Letton, a spokeswoman for Whole Foods, told AP. An employee, who was laying out the food in the stores, subsequently discovered the mislabeled salads. The Austin-based grocer issued the recall in alignment with the FDA's standard rulebook. It is also expected to post signs across stores on Friday, warning customers about the issue, said Letton.

Whole Foods owns 330 stores across the United States and is known for its natural and organic products. Ironically, in the eighth annual Harris Interactive/The Wall Street Journal ranking of the best and worst company reputations, Whole Foods ranked 12th out of 60 and was awarded the best score for social responsibility. They were also praised for being eco-friendly and socially responsible for its quality of organic goods.

Previously in 2012, the company voluntarily recalled peanut butter cookies from four states due to possible Salmonella contamination.
