WASHINGTON, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- ConAgra Foods in Milton, Pa., recalled more than 54,673 pounds of chicken noodle soup due to misbranding and the undeclared allergens of wheat and egg.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said the product was formulated with wheat and egg -- known allergens -- which were not declared on the label. 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-ounce 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 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. The FSIS and the company said they have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact the ConAgra Foods hotline number at: 1-800-289-6014.
