Misbranding and undeclared allergens reason behind recall

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Charlotte, North Carolina’s B. Robert’s Foods is recalling more than 4,000 pounds of chicken noodle soup due to undeclared allergens and misbranding.

The chicken noodle soup is made with egg, a known allergen. When the product made its way to stores, the wrong label was on the package. Instead of “Chicken Noodle Soup”, the label said “Harris Teeter Fresh Foods Market Chef’s Recipe Chicken and Wild Rice Soup”.

This recall is being classified as Class I with a high health risk, meaning it’s “a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death”.

The products being recalled are:

  • 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”, a “SELL-BY 01/31/15” in the bottom right corner of the label, and “P-19198” inside the USDA inspection label.

The products were shipped to grocery stores in Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington.

Consumers with questions and concerns can call Antonio Gilges, Quality Assurance Manager for B. Robert’s Foods at (704) 944-5311.
