WASHINGTON, Jan. 21 (UPI) -- The Agriculture Department's Food Safety and Inspection Service has issued recalls for 6,200 pounds of Wolfgang Puck soups because they were labeled as garbanzo and pinto beans and 150 pounds of pork sausage that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The Food and Drug Administration posted a recall of dried sweep potato because they contain sulfites not listed on the ingredient label, posing the threat of severe allergic reaction for some people and for those suffering from asthma.
The FSIS said it discovered the mislabeling of the soup through routine microbiological sampling. The recalled soups were produced by Chiquita Processed Foods LLC of Payette, Idaho, and distributed to retail stores in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington. Cans of Chicken Parmesan with Pasta, produced Nov. 2, were labeled as S&W Garbanzo Beans while cans of Grilled Chicken with Rice, produced Sept. 20, were labeled as S&W Pinto Beans.
A consumer complaint Jan. 4 uncovered the problem. For more information, call 608-846-8206.
