Chicken noodle soup recalled on allergen concerns
By Meat&Poultry Staff
WASHINGTON, December 6, 2013 – Everett, Wash.-based StockPot Inc. is recalling 1,864 cases (approximately 22,368 lbs.) of chicken noodle soup due to misbranding and presence of an undeclared allergen. The Classic Chicken Noodle Soup product is formulated with wheat, a known allergen. The product was released with a Loaded Baked Potato Style Soup side label, which does not declare this allergen.
The problem was reported by a supermarket employee who noticed the labeling error while stocking shelves. The problem occurred when a subset of the labels provided by the label printing company were assembled incorrectly. The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
The product subject to recall is:
• 24-oz. plastic tub of Wholesome@Home “Classic Chicken Noodle Soup.” The establishment number “P-18235” is located on the label on the lid.
The suspect products were produced on Oct. 25 and 26, 2013, with a use-by date of Feb. 17 and 18, 2014. The product was shipped to distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Indiana, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington. The product was sold only at retail.
