Sun Noodle- New Jersey- Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Egg in Tonkotsu Ramen

For Immediate Release

December 14, 2015



Pamela Ritz


Sun Noodle of Teterboro, NJ is voluntarily recalling its Tonkotsu Ramen because it may contain undeclared egg. Individuals who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to egg run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The Tonkotsu Ramen product was primarily sent to Asian food distributors in the New Jersey, Georgia, Illinois and New York areas, and then on to retail stores. The product is packaged in a clear plastic clamshell, banded with a Sun Noodle Tonkotsu Ramen label, with yellow font. These products contain a 2 pack red and white colored soup base package on the bottom. The net weight of the product is 12oz, with a UPC code of 0 85315 40003 5. The products that are affected by the recall are labeled with lot codes that range from 3114350 through 3215336. The lot code can be found typically towards the bottom of the individual noodle package.

No illnesses have been reported to date, and all affected product has been isolated from distribution.

The error was discovered during a routine product review. The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the egg-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg on the label. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a mis-labeling of the product.

Only one product- Tonkotsu Ramen- manufactured at the Sun Noodle New Jersey facility was affected. All other products manufactured at other Sun Noodle locations are properly labeled and the Tonkotsu Ramen product is not made with any egg or egg white powder.

The specific lot codes affected are as follows:
