North Aire Market, Inc.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- April 8, 2008 -- North Aire Market of Shakopee, MN is recalling 99 boxes of Chicken Dumpling Soup Mix because they may contain undeclared traces of almonds. The 99 boxes were sold in various parts of the country primarily to specialty gift shops and through the company’s web site under the brand, “Maggie & Mary’s Chicken Dumpling Soup Mix.” The lot codes related to this recall are: 0730810, 0720810, 0910810, 0920811, 0920810, 0930810, 0980810, and are found on the bottom of the retail box.
The dumplings in the soup mix may have may have been exposed to residual traces of almonds which may have been present on machinery used to package an almond containing product earlier. However, no almond traces were found on the machinery, no almond traces were found within any dumpling packages, and there are no reports of illness associated with this recall. This recall is precipitated by an uncertainty as to whether one step in the sanitizing procedure was properly followed to make the machinery ready to package the 99 units.
The Company has been in phone contact with 86 % of the stores which received this product and is making attempts to reach the remaining stores.
Consumers who have purchased Maggie & Mary’s Chicken Dumpling Soup Mix are urged to contact North Aire Market at 800-662-3781 and will be given a full refund of the purchase price of the product.
