By Jean-Paul, McDonald, Farms.com
Whole Foods Market is recalling their Whole Foods Market Kitchens Roasted Garlic and Eggplant Soup in stores across six U.S. states due to product mislabelling. The recalled product in question is labelled as Whole Foods Market Kitchens Roasted Garlic and Eggplant Soup, but in fact contains Lobster Bisque – which could lead to severe allergic reactions for people with allergies to shellfish or milk.
The recalled soup was sold in 24_oz containers at Whole Foods Market stores in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and Rhode Island between September 29 and October 2, 2012. The recalled product label shows a sell-by date of October 4, 2012.
All affected products have been removed from store shelves and consumers who have bought this product from Whole Foods Market in the identified states can return the product for a full refund. Consumers with questions about the recall are urged to contact their local Whole Foods Market store or call 617-492-5500 Monday to Friday during the hours of 9am and 5pm EST.
