Recall Release: Kettle Cuisine, LLC Recalls Chicken Soup Product Due to Misbranding and Undeclared Allergens

CLASS I RECALL
HEALTH RISK: HIGH
WASHINGTON, Jan. 12, 2017 – Kettle Cuisine, LLC, a Lynn, Mass. establishment, is recalling approximately 3,096 pounds of chicken soup product due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The label declares the product to be chicken soup, when it is actually an Italian wedding soup with meatballs. The product also contains eggs, milk, and wheat, known allergens which are not declared on the product label.

The chicken soup items were produced and packaged on January 3, 2017. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 24 ounce cups containing “MOM’S CHICKEN SOUP” with a “USE BY” date of 02/17/17

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-18468” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to Whole Foods Market locations in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Rhode Island.

The problem was discovered when a retail store noted that product labeled as “Mom’s Chicken Soup” actually contained “Italian Wedding Soup with Meatballs.”

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and 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.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Richard Bourgeoise, Director of Food Safety and Regulatory Compliance, at (617) 409-1120.
