Progressive Gourmet Inc. of Wilmington, MA, is voluntarily recalling its frozen, 9 ounce packages of Taste of Inspirations Edamame Rangoon out of an abundance of caution because they have the potential to contain crustacean shellfish (crab). People who have an allergy to crustacean shellfish run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. The item is produced for Hannaford Supermarkets.
The product comes in a 9 ounce carton, marked with Best Before: 1 1117 on the back of the retail carton. Note, no other production runs of this product are impacted by this recall.
The potentially impacted Edamame Rangoon were possibly sold to consumers at select Hannaford stores located in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and New York.
A consumer reported the mislabeling incident. The firm has initiated prompt corrective actions to prevent future mislabeling. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this product.
Consumers who have purchased 9 ounce packages of the edamame rangoon are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-224-7630 (9:00 am – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday EST).
