WASHINGTON (WTXL) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing a public health alert for frozen chicken and vegetable wonton soup products due to undeclared allergens and misbranding.

According to FSIS, Trader Ming’s Chicken & Vegetable Wonton Soup’s 10.75 ounce containers may contain shrimp, a known allergen, and pork.

Shrimp and pork are not declared on the product label.

The product lot code on the side of the package is 31FA322.

FSIS is issuing this public health alert out of the utmost of caution to ensure that consumers with allergies to shrimp are aware that these products should not be consumed. A recall was not requested because it is believed that the products are no longer available for consumers to purchase.

The problem was discovered when the producing establishment notified FSIS that it received a consumer complaint that shrimp and pork were in the bowls labeled as chicken and vegetable wonton soup.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.

FSIS noted that consumers should throw out the package or return it to the store where it was purchased.
