Seneca Foods Recalls Hy-Vee Product for Labeling Error
Seneca Foods Corporation has taken a prudent step by voluntarily recalling a specific batch of Hy-Vee Turkey gravy, packaged in glass jars, due to a mislabeling issue. Surprisingly, the jars contain beef gravy instead of the labelled turkey gravy. This oversight could pose a risk to individuals with soy allergies as the product might contain soy, an allergen not listed on the packaging.
Seneca is actively retrieving the incorrectly labelled Hy-Vee Turkey Gravy from its distribution channels to address this concern. It’s important to note that this recall is exclusive to Hy-Vee Turkey Gravy sold solely at Hy-Vee stores; other retailers have not been affected by this issue. For those with soy allergies, consuming these mislabeled products could lead to severe or even life-threatening allergic reactions.
Seneca emphasizes that there have been no reported consumer illnesses related to this product.
The recall pertains explicitly to Hy-Vee Turkey Gravy packaged in 12 oz. glass jars with the following identifiers:
- UPC: 75450-03608
- Individual Lot Code On Lid: A3CG162M A3CG192M
It’s worth noting that this recall impacts less than 1% of the total product sold at Hy-Vee stores. To ensure consumer safety, individuals who have purchased this product are urged to return it to the store of purchase for a complete refund.
