ConAgra Foods, a Milton, Pa. establishment, is recalling approximately 54,673 pounds of chicken noodle soup products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The product is formulated with wheat and egg, known allergens, which are not declared on the label. However, the product was released with a “Healthy Choice Chicken with Rice” soup label, which does not declare the allergens.
The products subject to recall include 14-oz. microwave bowls of “Healthy Choice Chicken with Rice” soup bearing the establishment number “P-770” inside the USDA Mark of Inspection and the Best By date of “JUN092015” stamped on the bottom of the bowl.
The products were produced Dec. 16, 2013 and shipped to retail outlets nationwide. The products were also distributed to the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Puerto Rico. The problem was reported to the firm by consumers who discovered chicken noodle soup in mislabeled bowls. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
