NEW YORK — Hearty Acquisitions Inc. of Brooklyn is recalling its pints of "Tomato Basil with Rice; EXP 3/22/2024" 16 oz. containers because they contain "Butternut Squash Bisque," resulting in soy being undeclared on the label.
People who have allergies to soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled "Tomato Basil With Rice EXP 3/22/2024" was distributed locally in the state of New York to the following retail stores: Food Garden Market, Windsor Market, Lincoln Market and Food Universe.
The product comes in a 16-ounce, clear plastic package labeled as “Tomato Basil With Rice 3/22/2024” marked with lot #03222024 on the top side lid and with an expiration date of 03/22/2024, and UPC 635508547872.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the soy containing product was distributed in packaging that was labeled as “Tomato Basil With Rice EXP 3/22/2024” and did not reveal the presence of soy. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by mislabeling of the product during the boxing process.
Distribution of the batch has been suspended until the FDA and the company are certain that the problem has been corrected.
Consumers who have purchased 16-ounce Pints of "Tomato Basil With Rice" are urged to dispose of or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-718-640-1854.
