FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 24, 2014 - The ORIGINAL SOUPMAN of Staten Island, New York, is recalling some of its LOBSTER BISQUE in Tetra Pak cartons because due to human error some cartons were printed omitting that, in addition to lobster, the product also contains shrimp, as well as perch and tilapia in its lobster base. Only people who have allergies to shrimp (Crustaceans) run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

 

The recalled “Original Soupman Lobster Bisque” was distributed nationwide in retail stores.

 

The product comes in a 17 oz., tetra pak carton marked with lot numbers:

 

Lot Number
0314435801
0411435801
0523435801
0709435803
0822435801
0709435802
0821435801

 

on the top and with a best buy date stamped on the top as well.

No allergic reactions have been reported to date in connection with this problem and the product is otherwise safe for consumption by persons who have no allergies to lobster, shrimp, perch or tilapia.

 

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that when the Company moved its production to the United States, the product was distributed in packaging that inadvertently did not declare the presence of shrimp, perch and tilapia.

Consumers that have purchased the “Lobster Bisque” can call the Company to arrange for return and a refund. Consumers may contact the Company at 646-722-6673, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. ET.
