WASHINGTON, Oct. 19, 2023 – Aunt Kitty's Foods Inc., a Vineland, N.J. establishment, is recalling approximately 15,728 pounds of canned ready-to-eat (RTE) chicken pot pie soup products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains soy, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The canned RTE chicken pot pie soup items were produced on August 28, 2023. The following products are subject to recall [view labels]:
- 15-oz. metal cans containing “HANOVER SOUP CLASSICS Chicken Pot Pie” with lot code P864 4893 23241950 and “BEST BY SEP 2026” both printed on top of the can.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-864” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia.
The problem was discovered when the establishment notified FSIS that they conducted an inventory review and realized they used chicken with soy, which was not declared on the label.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ pantries. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution lists will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
Consumers and members of the media with questions about the recall can contact Shannon Wallen, Corporate QA Manager, Hanover Foods, at 1-800-888-4646.
