Bakkavor Foods USA, Inc. Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Milk in Mushroom Barley Soup - 2/5/20

Company Announcement

Bakkavor Foods USA, Inc. is voluntarily recalling 840 units of Harris Teeter’s Fresh Food Market Mushroom Barley Soup, 16 oz with “SELL BY” date codes 03/09/20 because it may contain undeclared milk. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that Chicken Wild Rice Soup containing Milk was distributed in Mushroom Barley Soup packaging that did not reveal the presence of Milk. The problem was discovered when a Harris Teeter employee was stocking store shelves and noticed the discrepancy.

Subsequent investigation indicates that this isolated problem was caused by a very limited deviation in the company’s production and packaging process.

Products were distributed to Harris Teeter’s retail stores in Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Washington DC.

The product comes in plastic cups with SKU numbers and “Sell BY” date codes printed to the labels.
