College Inn Initiates Voluntary Recall of Select Canned Chicken Broth Products due to Mislabeling
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - December 4, 2009 - PITTSBURGH – As a precautionary measure, due to mislabeling, College Inn is initiating a voluntary recall of College Inn® No MSG Chicken Broth sold in individual 14 ½ oz cans.
All other sizes and varieties of College Inn® Chicken Broth are correctly labeled and therefore are not affected by this voluntary recall.
College Inn is voluntarily recalling College Inn® No MSG Chicken Broth in individual 14 ½ oz cans due to the presence of wheat (an allergen) which was not declared in the ingredient statement. Also, the label incorrectly states that the product does not contain Monosodium Glutamate (MSG). The following product is subject to the voluntary recall:
Product Name Best By Dates
College Inn® No MSG Chicken Broth Individual 14 ½ oz cans All Dates
(Only products labeled "No MSG")
People who are allergic to wheat may run a risk of serious adverse health consequences by consuming this product. To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with this mislabeling.
Individuals without an allergy to wheat and without a sensitivity to Monosodium Glutamate may continue to enjoy this product.
College Inn products are 100% guaranteed.
