Recall Roundup: June 10, 2009

Here is today's list of food safety recalls, product withdrawals and allergy alerts. The live links will take you directly to the official recall notices and company news releases that contain detailed information for each recall and alert.

United States
  • Allergy Alert: The Kroger Co. recalls Kroger Fully Cooked Buffalo Style Chicken Wings, 32 oz. due to the presence of undeclared wheat, soy and dairy ingredients. The recalled chicken wings were sold in Kroger, Dillons, King Soopers, Food 4 Less, Smith's, Jay C, and Fry's stores.

Europe, Including the United Kingdom
  • Animal Feed Contamination (Finland): Hankklja-Maatalous Oy reports that in-house testing has detected Salmonella Mbandaka in a 30-ton batch of imported rapeseed meal. Initial testing of the rapeseed meal last fall by the company and by the Finnish government did not detect any Salmonella. Most of the meal was delivered to cattle farms; however, none of the cattle that were fed the meal have become infected. The company has discontinued deliveries of the Salmonella-contaminated batch.

Asia, Africa and the Pacific
  • Food Recall (Singapore): The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore has instructed the importer of Campbell’s Country Ladle Potato and Leek Soup to recall one batch of the Australian-made product. The soup was recalled in Australia last week by Campbell's Soup Australia due to contamination with black rubber pieces.
