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

  • Stonewall Kitchen branded Ghost Pepper Salsa, sold in 16 fluid ounce glass jars with brushed silver lids with an “enjoy-by” date of 23MAY2021 but actually containing another Stonewall Kitchen branded product, specifically, Ghost Pepper Queso.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled Salsa products can be found on the Web site above.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the FDA, Stonewall Kitchen has recalled an estimated 4,812 jars of its Ghost Pepper Salsa from the American marketplace due to suspected mislabeling / mispackaging and consequential undeclared Milk and Soy. The recalled Ghost Pepper Salsa actually contains Ghost Pepper Queso, a product with two known allergens, Milk and Soy, and therefore don’t appear on the ingredient statement of the mislabeled jars.

==> For information about Milk Allergy, Milk Intolerance and Soy Allergy, please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab at the top of this page.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of these recalled Ghost Pepper Salsa and could be allergic to their Milk and/or 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 directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

Please note: the mislabeled jars are easy to spot: the Ghost Pepper Queso product is Cheese-based and thus is a bright yellow-orange color. The Ghost Pepper Salsa, on the other hand, is Tomato-based and is, therefore, dark red in color.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat Anaphylaxis.
