Eggs by Other Names
If you see these ingredients on food labels, it means the food may contain egg proteins:
What About Vaccines?
The measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine contains eggs. But studies show that it’s safe for people with egg allergies.
Flu vaccines may also have some egg protein in it. Experts have long advised people with allergies to eggs not to get the flu shot. But the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology says the vaccine contains such a low amount of egg protein that it's unlikely to cause an allergic reaction in those people.
If you have a severe allergy to eggs, talk to your doctor first. There is a version of the flu vaccine, called Flublok, that’s made without using eggs. It’s approved for adults 18 to 49 years old.
The only way to know for sure if a food has eggs in it is to read the food label and ingredients list carefully, or ask about menu items at restaurants. If you still aren't sure, don’t eat the food.
Also check labels of cosmetics, shampoos, creams, and lotions. These can sometimes have eggs in them, too.
Most young children outgrow their egg allergy, but to be sure, ask your child’s doctor.
