Allergy Alert: Progresso Soup Recalled

UPDATED November 3, 2008

General Mills has announced a recall of one day's production of Progresso Hearty Tomato Soup, due to possible mislabeling during production. Due to a production error, some cans of Progresso Light Vegetable and Noodle Soup were labeled as Progresso Hearty Tomato Soup.

The mislabeled cans may contain one or more of the allergens egg, milk and soy. As a precaution, General Mills has recalled all of the following:
19-ounce cans of Progresso Hearty Tomato Soup with the code date 19May10 NV VN-3 on the bottom of the can and UPC #4119691068

Individuals who are allergic to egg, milk or soy may experience a severe allergic reaction shortly after consuming a food that contains these allergens. Anyone who has purchased the recalled soup should return it to the store for a refund.
