Misbranded chicken noodle soup gets recalled
B. Robert’s Foods, a Charlotte, N.C. establishment, is recalling approximately 4,474 pounds of chicken noodle soup due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The Chicken Noodle Soup product is formulated with egg, a known allergen. However, the product was released with a Chicken and Wild Rice Soup side label, which does not declare this allergen.
The items with the following label, produced on December 12, 2014, are subject to recall: 16-oz. (454g) refrigerated packages of "HARRIS TEETER FRESH FOODS MARKET CHEF’S RECIPE CHICKEN AND WILD RICE SOUP” with UPC code “6108819179,” product code “57878” and a “SELL-BY 01/31/15” in the bottom right corner of the label.
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “P-19198” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were distributed to grocery stores in Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
A grocery store employee discovered that “Chicken Noodle Soup” products were incorrectly labeled as “Harris Teeter Fresh Foods Market Chef’s Recipe Chicken and Wild Rice Soup.” The grocery store reported the error to B. Robert’s Foods which found that the products had been incorrectly labeled.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
