Alexa just added eggs to our shopping list without us asking. Is this a known behavior? Actual conversation from this morning:

Susan: "Alexa, what is on the shopping list?"
Alexa: "Your shopping list is empty. Try saying, 'Alexa, add eggs to my shopping list.' ...  ...  ... OK, I added eggs to your shopping list."
Susan: " Alexa, what is on the shopping list?"
Alexa: "You have one item on your shopping list: eggs."

Also, last week I went for groceries and the Amazon Alexa app on my phone showed a list at first which listed a few of the items which disappeared. I called home and successfully got the dozen items verbally from Alexa by asking family (humans) to query the device.
