Stop & Shop Recalls Vegetarian Vegetable Soup for Un-Declared Allergen

Boston, MA (SafetyAlerts) - Stop & Shop Supermarket Company announced late Thursday evening they are recalling Stop & Shop Vegetarian Vegetable Soup, condensed, 10-3/4 oz., because the product contains egg enriched pasta not declared on the label.

People who have allergies or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if consumed.

The Stop & Shop Vegetarian Vegetable Soup was inadvertantly distributed to a Connecticut food bank which supplies food to New Haven area agencies.

According to a press release issued by the food chain, Stop & Shop was notified of the potential allergy alert by a customer.  No illness has been reported.

The recall was initiated after it was discovering the product contained egg enriched pasta that was not revealed in the ingredients statement. Those with allergies to eggs should not consume the product. Inquiries may be directed to Stop & Shop's Consumer Relations Department, 800-767-7772.

Notice of this product warning was sent via email to SafeMail subscribers May 12, 2000.
