Over 50,000 Hot Sauce Bottles Sold In New York State Recalled
Reason For Hot Sauce Recall In New York
"The recall was initiated after a report was received from a direct customer that a bottle labeled as Texas Pete® Buffalo Wing Sauce was located instead of Texas Pete® Extra Mild Wing Sauce. The bottle of Texas Pete® Buffalo Wing Sauce was missing the allergen declaration of soy," the FDA states.
Bottles of the recalled hot sauce aren't labeled with soy. People with an allergy to soy could have a life-threatening allergic reaction, according to the FDA.
"People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of (a) serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product," the FDA states in its recall notice.
An investigation indicates the problem was caused by applying the wrong label during a portion of the production run, officials say.
Recalled Hot Sauce
The recalled hot sauce was shipped to distribution centers and retail stores located in New York and several other states including AL, CT, FL, GA, LA, MS, NC, PA, SC, TN, TX and VA.
Anyone with a soy allergy or sensitivity who purchased the recalled hot sauce is urged not to consume the product, toss it, or return it to their place of purchase for a full refund.
No illnesses have been reported, the FDA reports.
