Soyco Foods® Has Recalled Soymage Vegan Single Slices

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.
