ConAgra Recalls Healthy Choice-Chicken With Rice Soup

Archbold, Ohio - (SafetyAlerts) -- ConAgra Grocery Products Company, is voluntarily recalling approximately 290,000 pounds of soup that is labeled as chicken with rice soup because it may contain eggs and wheat flour that are undeclared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture?s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced on Sep 5.

Wheat flour and eggs are both known allergens. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to either of these items run the risk of possible allergic reactions if they consume these products.

The product being recalled is 18.75 oz. cans of "HEALTHY CHOICE SOUPS, Chicken with Rice." Each can bears the establishment number "P91" inside the USDA seal of inspection and a product code beginning with "08NG."

The product was produced on August 21, 2000, and was distributed to retail and wholesale stores nationwide.

"We urge consumers to check their homes for this product," said Thomas Billy, FSIS administrator. "If they find the product listed above, consumers should not eat it, but return it to the point of purchase."

The problem was discovered when the company informed USDA after receiving customer complaints.

Consumers with questions about the recall may contact ConAgra?s consumer hotline at (800) 414-2500. Media with questions may contact Kay Carpenter, Corporate Communications, at (949) 437-1144.
