Soyco Foods® Has Recalled Soymage Vegan Single
Orlando, FL (SafetyAlerts)
The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) said that Soyco
Foods has recalled 4,871 cases of its 6 ounce packages of Vegan Singles
Mozzarella (IWS - Individually Wrapped Slices) and 4,976 cases of its 6
ounce packages of Vegan Singles Yellow American because they may possibly
contain trace amounts of milk protein. People who have allergies to milk
protein run the possible risk of serious or life-threatening allergic
reaction if they consume this product.
The recalled Vegan Single Slice (IWS) product was distributed through
distribution centers in the following states: NY, IA, CA, OH, PA, FL, IL,
WI, WA, VT, CO, OR, IN, NJ, TX, MN, GA, NH and CT for further distribution
to retail stores possibly nationwide.
The product comes in a 6 oz IWS film with two flavors, UPC # 0-77172-64020-4
(Mozzarella) and UPC # 0-77172-64025-9 (Yellow American), and expiration
dates of January 23, 2003 or prior stamped on the front display panel.
This voluntary recall was initiated after it was discovered that a milk
protein-containing product may have been mistakenly cross-mixed into the
dairy-free Vegan Slices. Immediate actions in processing have already been
taken to insure this possibility is eliminated for future production. New
production is already underway and will carry a special Quality Assurance
Seal on each package for the next several months, thus helping our
distributors, trade partners, and loyal consumers identify this new product.
Consumers who have purchased the 6 oz IWS packages of Vegan Slices that are
allergic to milk proteins are urged to dispose the product and contact
Galaxy Nutritional Foods directly at 1-800-441-9419 to receive a full refund
for their purchase and to address any questions they may have.
