A recall has been issued for Panera at Home chicken tortilla soup, a product sold at Publix, Winn-Dixie and Wal-Mart stores in The Villages.
The recall includes 6,690 pounds of soup with chicken products that may be contaminated with plastic, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The ready-to-eat chicken tortilla soup was produced on April 26. Consumers should be looking for 16-ounce plastic bowls containing “Panera Bread at Home Chicken Tortilla Soup” with a “Use By date” of July 5 and lot codes 042619-3V or 042619-4V printed on the bottom of the container.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-13130” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distribution centers and retail locations in Arizona, Florida and Georgia. This recall only impacts Panera Bread at Home products. It does not include any product sold at Panera Bread restaurants.
The problem was discovered when the recalling firm notified FSIS of consumer complaints.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumer’s refrigerators or freezers. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
