Additional information:
Food Standards Australia New Zealand (“FSANZ”) reports the recalled Ravioli was sold in one-kilogram vacuum-sealed plastic trays (2 by 500g packets), all with “use by dates” up to and including 5/05/13.

About Soy Allergies:
For some people, soy (and soy products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to soy or soy-based products within a very short time, possibly leading to severe injury and/or death.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 0-0-0 (Australia), 1-1-1 (New Zealand) or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
