The company is recalling the product due to misbranding and undeclared allergens.
WASHINGTON – The US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that Campbell Soup Company, Maxton, North Carolina, is recalling approximately 4,185 lbs. of chicken soup products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. The products contain milk, which is not declared on the label.
The following products are subject to recall:
• 18.6-oz. cans of “Campbell’s Homestyle Healthy Request Chicken with Whole Grain Pasta” with Best By date of Feb. 13, 2019 located on the bottom of the cans.
The soup items were produced on Feb. 13, 2017, and bear establishment number “EST. 4R” on the bottom of the cans. These items were shipped to retail locations in Florida.
The problem was discovered on April 20 when the company received notification of multiple consumer complaints from their corporate office. Consumers complained that the soup cans contained a different product that what the label indicated. The products were labeled as “Campbell’s Homestyle Healthy Request Chicken with Whole Grain Pasta” but actually contained “Campbell’s Homestyle Healthy Request Italian-Style Wedding Spinach & Meatballs in Chicken Broth” soup.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. Instead, they should throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
