WASHINGTON, Feb. 19, 2016 – Flying Food Group, LLC, a Grapevine, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 1,006 pounds of Edamame Hummus Wrap products due to adulteration and misbranding, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The Edamame Hummus Wrap products are mislabeled and may contain Thai Style Chicken Peanut Wraps, which are formulated with peanuts and tree nuts, known allergens not declared on the product label.
The Edamame Hummus Wrap products were assembled on Feb. 16, 2016, and are stamped with an ENJOY BY 02/19 date. The following product is subject to recall: [Label]
• 6.8-oz. container of Starbucks brand “Edamame Hummus Wrap
The products being recalled do not contain an establishment number on the label, as the Edamame Hummus Wraps are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The products should contain hummus, but may contain chicken, which makes the products amenable to the Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA). These items were distributed to retail locations in Texas and Oklahoma.
The problem was discovered after the establishment received a complaint from a Starbucks store. As soon as Starbucks confirmed the supplier labeling error; the impacted product was removed from the 559 Texas and Oklahoma stores that received it.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
