Blount Fine Foods of Fall River, MA is recalling Blount All Natural New England Clam Chowder, Net Wt. 20 oz with Lot: 0424086D, Sell by date: 6/23/2008, because it may contain undeclared shrimp
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued the following:
Blount Fine Foods of Fall River, MA is recalling Blount All Natural New England Clam Chowder, Net Wt. 20 oz with Lot: 0424086D, Sell by date: 6/23/2008, because it may contain undeclared shrimp. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to shrimp run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. Our firm has recovered 1,400 of 1,416 units produced, 16 units are in distribution.
Blount New England Clam Chowder was distributed through the following supermarket chains: Shaw's Supermarkets (in Massachusetts and Connecticut), Omni Foods (in Weston, MA), Donelan Market (in Acton and Littleton, MA), and The Cirelli Marketplace store (Middleboro, MA). The product is identified as a 20oz plastic cup with a film seal and plastic lid. The dark blue product label reads: Blount Signature Soups All Natural New England Clam Chowder, Keep Refrigerated. The lot code and sell by date are printed in black ink on the bottom of the cup.
No illnesses have been reported to date. The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing shrimp was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of shrimp. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by an isolated, temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes.
Consumers who have purchased Blount All Natural New England Clam Chowder are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers who have health-related concerns should contact their physician. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-274-2526.
