article imageWhole Foods mixes up chicken and vegan salads

By Layne Weiss     May 9, 2013 in Food
Whole Foods Market Inc. announced Thursday that labels on its curried chicken salad and those on a vegan version of the salad were reversed at some of its stores in the Northeast.
The mislabeled salads were sold in 15 stores in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New York, and New York, the company, which is based in Austin, TX, said, according to The Associated Press.
The Food and Drug Administration said the chicken salad contains eggs and the vegan version contains soy. Both eggs and soy are popular allergens. The salads have been recalled, NewsRoomAmerica reports. The risks are too big to take any chances right now.
So, far, no illnesses have been reported, The Associated Press reports.
Libba Letton, a spokeswoman for Whole Foods, explained some of the company's bulk food comes pre-made from third party vendors. The curried salads, both chicken and vegan arrived with the wrong labels already on them, and appropriate action (as previously noted, a recall has been issued) has been taken.
