Product DescriptionRice Cake Soup
Ottogi America, Inc. of Gardena, CA is recalling 6.40 ounce “Rice cake soup” food, because it may contain undeclared milk. People who have allergies to milk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled “Rice Cake Soup” was distributed nationwide in retail stores. The product comes in a 6.40 ounce, yellow paper bowl package marked with Item No: 29409101 on the back with an expiration date of June 20th 2018 stamped under the case.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the milk-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a misprinting in the company's packaging processes.
Production of the product has been suspended until FDA and the company are certain that the problem has been corrected.
Consumers who have purchased 6.40 ounce packages of "Rice cake soup" are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-310-324-1094. (Monday – Friaday from 8:00AM to 5:00PM PST)
