Pasta & Co. Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Eggs in "Tuna Noodle" Casserole
206-322-1644, ext. 20
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Seattle, WA -- February 5, 2004 -- Pasta & Co. of Seattle, WA., is recalling its 11 ounce and 2 lb. packages of "Tuna Noodle" casserole because it contains undeclared eggs. People who have allergies to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled "Tuna Noodles" were distributed through Pasta & Co.'s five neighborhood retail stores located in Bellevue, Issaquah (location closed July 2003) Redmond, Queen Anne and University Village.
The product comes in an 11 ounce plastic container or a 2 lb. foil pan with a clear plastic lid. Affected items are marked with lot #001 - 365 on the bottom of the package. All unsold packages are being relabeled with the correct ingredient statement.
No other Pasta & Co. products are affected. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered during a labeling update that the ingredient labels on the affected products did not include the reference to eggs.
Consumers who have purchased these products and wish to return them for a full refund may do so by returning them to one of Pasta & Co.'s four retail stores. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 206-322-1644.
