A Long Beach-based company is recalling 1,589 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken meatballs containing an allergen that wasn’t listed on the ingredients label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Tuesday.
According to the FSIS, the “Lemonade Chicken Thai-Style Meatballs” contain soy, which is not listed on the product label. Federal officials said the affected product was produced and packaged April 24 for Lemonade restaurants and shipped to a California distribution center.
The Long Beach company, Santa Fe Importers Inc., notified the FSIS after learning the bread crumbs used in the product contained soy lecithin, officials said. There have been no confirmed reports of any adverse reactions due to consumption of the meatballs, but anyone who believes they may have been affected was urged to contact a health care provider.
Anyone who may have purchased the product was urged to throw it away or return it to the store.
