OTTAWA (dpa-AFX) - Canada-based food processing company Canyon Creek Soup Co. is recalling about 7,275 pounds of meatball soup products due to risk of adverse health effects as they were not inspected at the U.S. point of entry.
The recalled products include 291 cases containing ten 2.56 lb. plastic soup package kits labeled 'Vietnamese inspired Pho Bo Vein' consisting of broth with meatballs, rice noodles, sriracha packets, and hoisin packets bearing package code 16AL20 or 16AL24.
The affected products bear establishment number 'EST. 422' inside the USDA mark of inspection, and were shipped to retail outlets in California.
The problem was discovered when a Customs and Border Protection official notified the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service personnel that the items had been shipped without inspection.
There have been no reports of adverse reactions tied to the consumption of the recalled products.
Consumers who have purchased the affected meatball soup products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
