FDA warns – Hans Kissle recalls 7oz Mexican Style Quinoa Salad due to undeclared egg, soy

Haverhill, Massachusetts-based company Hans Kissle has recalled its 7-ounce packages of Mexican Style Quinoa Salad due to the presence of egg and soy, two allergens not declared on the the product’s ingredient statement.

Consumers who live with an allergy or severe sensitivity to either egg or soy are advised that they could suffer a major, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction upon ingesting the product.

Initiated by Hans Kissle on January 18, 2024, the recall covers packages of unbranded Mexican Style Quinoa Salad that were distributed and made available at Hannaford’s Supermarkets across five U.S. states: Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Maine, and Vermont.

As shown in the product photo attached to the FDA announcement, the deli salad is packaged in a 7-ounce clear plastic clamshell container bearing UPC 036217172018 and a “Use By” date of “1/22/24” printed on the snap-on lid.

Officials say they learned about the mislabeling after the product had already been distributed without the egg or soy declarations.

While Hans Kissle has not received any reports of allergic reactions or illness connected to the mislabeling, anyone who may be in possession of an affected package is asked to refrain from consuming the product. The item may be brought back to the point of purchase in exchange for a complete refund. Further questions may be directed to the company at +1(978)556-4500, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern time.
