Tyler, Texas (USDA) — 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 today. 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 bear the label:
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. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to ensure that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at: www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
