FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — April 17, 2014 – Price Chopper Supermarkets is issuing a voluntary recall on its Price Chopper Brand Tuscan White Bean Hummus. The product is being recalled due to it being mislabeled with the ingredient panel for Price Chopper Sweet Potato Hummus, which does not declare that the product contains parmesan cheese, a known allergen. Other than this labeling issue, the product is safe for consumption for those not allergic to cheese. The affected products were produced and purchased between March 19, 2014 and April 14, 2014.
Customers who have any of the affected product should return it to their local Price Chopper for a full refund.

In addition to alerting the media, Price Chopper has initiated its Smart Reply notification program, which uses purchase data and consumer phone numbers on file in connection with the company's AdvantEdge (loyalty) card to alert those households that may have purchased the product in question.
