Roundy’s Supermarkets Inc. in Kenosha is recalling more than 16,000 pounds of chili and soup that may be contaminated with foreign matter, including hard plastics.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Wednesday that the ready-to-eat chili and soup were produced and packaged on Oct. 3 with a “sell by” date of Dec. 2.
The items were shipped to retailers in Illinois and Wisconsin, to be sold to customers in grocery stores’ soup bar areas.
Roundy’s is recalling meat and bean soup in tomato base and Santa Fe-style turkey and white chicken chili with beans. The products have the establishment number “EST. 33997” or “P-33997” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The problem was discovered Monday, when Roundy’s was notified by a member of the company’s food safety team that plastic foreign material had been discovered in a bag of soup. Roundy’s decided to expand the recall to include all of the soups produced Oct. 3.
There have been no confirmed reports of sickness due to consumption of these products.
