More than 6,000 pounds of soup with chicken products are being recalled by a production company after plastic and other extraneous materials were found.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from consumption of these products, but anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a health care provider.
The ready-to-eat items were produced April 26.
The products subject to recall are 16-oz. plastic bowls containing “Panera BREAD at HOME Chicken Tortilla Soup” with a “Use By date” of 07/05/2019 and lot codes 042619-3V or 042619-4V printed on the bottom of the container.
They also bear the establishment number “P-13130” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distribution centers and retail locations in Arizona, Florida, and Georgia.
The recall does not impact any product sold at Panera Bread restaurants, it only impacts Panera Bread at Home products.
The problem was discovered after a recalling firm notified The U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of consumer complaints.
The FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them and dispose of the products or return them to the place of purchase.
