In a nutshell: Soy vey! Trader Joe’s ready-to-eat chicken noodles has the ingredient soy in it but not on the label. People who are allergic to soy could suffer problems.
Aug. 19, 2008 – Simmering Soup, Inc., a Cumberland, R.I., establishment, is recalling approximately 987 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken noodle products because they may contain soy, a known allergen, which is not declared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.
The following products are subject to recall:
12-ounce boxes of “TRADER MING’S Yakisoba Noodles with Sesame Chicken Breast.” Each box bears the establishment number “P-21166” as well as a “SELL BY” date of “8/26” or earlier.
