Alert over soup production error

- Last updated on GMT

General Mills is voluntarily recalling a single day’s production of Progresso Hearty Tomato soup because it was wrongly labeled and could put consumers allergic to egg, milk or soy at risk.

A production error resulted in a number of cases of Progresso Light Vegetable and Noodle soup being mislabeled as Progresso Hearty Tomato soup. These have the code 19May10 NV VN-3 on the bottom of the 19-ounce can and may contain egg, milk, and soy which are not listed on the ingredient label.

No other varieties or production dates are affected and there have been no reports of allergic reactions or illnesses.

The recall follows a recent fan-fare over Progresso removing the additive MSG from its products, in a competitive advertising campaign with Campbell Soup.
