Whole Foods Market is recalling Thai Soba Noodle Salad sold in all stores in five states, including Connecticut, due to an undeclared soy allergen, the Food and Drug Administration announced Friday. The product has a use-by date of May 25, 2014.
The salad contains edamame (soybeans) as an ingredient. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. It’s unclear if the package notes that edamame is in the salad.
The Whole Foods Market Kitchens salad, labeled as Whole Foods Market Thai Soba Noodle Salad under the Health Starts Here category, was sold in nine-ounce packages in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, on May 22, 2014.
Signage is posted in affected Whole Foods Market stores to notify customers of this recall, and all affected product has been removed from shelves, the FDA said.
Consumers who have purchased this product from Whole Foods Market may bring their receipt to the store for a full refund. Consumers with questions should contact their local store or call 617-492-5500 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
