Recall: Six Varieties of Island Soups Brand Products due to Bacteria
On September 7, New York-based Island Soups Company, Inc. recalled six of their products because of a chance of Clostridium botulinum contamination, a bacteria that is known to cause severe illness and sometimes death.
All of the following affected 16-ounce products have “best before” dates between July 2015 and June 2018:
Gungo Peas Soup, Gungo Peas Soup with no meat, Red Peas Soup, Red Peas Soup with no meat, Mannish Water, and Fish Shoup.
The products were sold in glass jars with white lids sealed in a white and brown plastic. All products were sold online and there have been no reported illnesses so far. According to an inspection by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the company does not have the appropriate documentation to ensure that the food products were produced while using practices completely up to standard in preventing the spread of the bacteria.
Customers of this product should discard them immediately.
If you or someone you know has faced injury or illness following the consumption of a contaminated food product, you may have legal recourse and the possibility of receiving compensation. Contact an attorney with Ravid & Associates, P.C. at (248) 948-9696 to learn more.
