INDIANA FIRM RECALLS CANNED CHICKEN SOUP DUE TO UNDECLARED ALLERGENS

WASHINGTON, Feb. 3, 2007 – Morgan Foods, an Austin, Ind., firm, is voluntarily recalling approximately 6,317 pounds of chicken noodle soup due to the presence of undeclared allergens (milk, soy), the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The product label indicates that the can contains chicken noodle soup; however, the can contains chicken, potato and broccoli soup with cheese. The soup contains milk and soy, known allergens, which are not declared on the label.

The following product is subject to recall:

  • 18.6-ounce cans of “Kroger, ready to serve SOUP, CHUNKY Classic Chicken Noodle.” Each label bears the establishment number “P-1469” inside the USDA seal of inspection. The bottom of each can also bears the “Best by” date and package code “BB 10/26/08, CCBRP J2606.”

The soup was produced on October 26, 2006 and was distributed to retail stores nationwide.

The problem was discovered following consumer complaints to retail establishments. FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a physician.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact company Human Resources Manager Bob Wormley at (812) 794-1269.
