Harry and David chili mix soup is recalled

September 13, 2007

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the nationwide recall of 1,440 bags of Harry and David Hearthside Soups, Southwestern Chicken Chili Mix.

The Harry & David Operations Corp. of Medford, Ore., said the product might contain another chili soup mix, and thus also contain a milk ingredient (whey) that isn't declared in an ingredient statement, posing a health risk for people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to dairy products.

The recalled soups, with a 8221-1 lot code, are packaged in clear plastic 12- to 16-ounce bags that are each tied at the top with a cream-and-red ribbon. The company said the price sticker states "Fajita Chili." The product was made for Harry & David by Conifer Specialty Inc., a co-packer.

The FDA said the problem occurred when bags labeled for a previous run of Southwestern Chicken Chili Mix were inadvertently used for a subsequent run of Fajita Chili Mix, which contains a milk ingredient not declared on the Southwestern Chicken Chili Mix ingredient statement.

Consumers with questions can contact the company at 800-345-5655.
