Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Foods are subject to this recall:

  • California Veggie Burger with a red “Gluten Free” banner below the word “Burger”. Each box is marked with a UPC of “080868000602”, a lot code of “F15BC” and an expiration date of 5/12/17.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the FDA, the recall was initiated after it was discovered that the soy containing product was packaged in boxes that did not reveal the presence of soy. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s packaging processes. This has been corrected.

The recalled Veggie Burgers were distributed to distributors in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington, with further distribution to retail stores in nearby states.

==> For information about Soy Allergy, please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Veggie Burgers and could be allergic to their soy ingredients, have a close family member who is allergic or has previously experienced Anaphylaxis or are unsure of your allergy status, please do not consume them. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
