The dumplings in the soup mix may have been exposed to residual traces of almonds which may have been present on machinery used to package a blend containing product earlier. Although no almond traces were found on the machinery, no almond traces were found within any dumpling packages, and there were no reports of illness associated with this, we could not be certain that no exposure occurred and because of this decided it was best to recall the 99 boxes that were determined could have been part of this possible exposure
