MOUNTAIN LAKES, N.J. (AP) _ Pinnacle Foods Group Inc. said Tuesday it is recalling two nationally distributed Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast foods because their packages failed to note they contain egg products and could harm consumers with egg allergies.

The recalled items are 12.5-ounce cartons of Frozen Aunt Jemima Cinnamon French Toast and 20-ounce cartons of Aunt Jemima ``Homestyle'' Low-Fat Waffles.

The products were manufactured in a Pinnacle Foods factory in Jackson, Tenn., a company spokesman said. People with sensitivity to eggs could run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the foods.

The products are safe for people without such allergies. No other Aunt Jemima products are affected.

Aunt Jemima French Toast containing eggs carry a code number 19600-05890, with a recommended ``use-by'' date of June 12, 2006 or later. Codes on the waffles are 19600-05130, with a use-by date of Nov. 17, 2006 or later.

Consumers with questions may contact Pinnacle Foods toll-free at 1-800-554-5680.
