Food recall - undeclared wheat in salad roll

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A Portland natural foods company has recalled two of its products because of undeclared soy and wheat.

Bui Natural Foods announced the voluntary recall on Saturday of its Shrimp Salad Roll and Vegetarian Salad Roll.

The products carried the product codes 8 95467 00203 8 and 8 95467 00204 5. It was distributed in the Portland metro area.

Each contained soy and wheat, but didn't disclose that on the packaging. People with soy or wheat allergies risk serious or life-threatening reactions if they consume them.

No illnesses were reported by Saturday afternoon in association with the recall.

The mistake was discovered by the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
