Hasty Tasty Food Service Recalls Sandwiches Due to Undeclared Allergens
Hasty Tasty Food Service Inc.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Davenport, IA -- January 27, 2006 -- Hasty Tasty Food Service Inc./DBA Valley Vending of Davenport Iowa is recalling the following items: Chicken Salad, Egg Salad, Ham Salad, and Tuna Salad sandwiches because they contain undeclared Dairy allergens (sweet dairy whey and butter). People who may have an allergy or severe sensitivity to Dairy products run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The Chicken Salad, Ham Salad, Egg Salad sandwiches were labeled under the brand names of Valley Vending/Hasty Tasty, Venture Vending, Prime Vending, and M & M Vending. Only the Tuna Salad Sandwiches were labeled with the Valley Vending/Hasty Tasty label. The sandwiches were distributed in the states of Iowa and Illinois through our mobile catering trucks and/or vending machines.
These products can be identified by the brand name and are packaged in a plastic wedge container with a date code on or before 1/26/06. The net weight on the label is 4.5 oz.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that our sliced bread containing sweet dairy whey and butter was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of these listed allergens on the label. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes. All products have been pulled from distribution and label corrections have been completed.
Anyone with questions concerning this matter may contact Hasty Tasty Food Service Inc./DBA Valley Vending at (563) 333-6783.
