Mei Shun Noodle, Inc. Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Shellfish and Soy in Rice Noodles
Mei Shun Noodle, Inc. of Chicago, IL, is recalling its 12 ounce packages of 6毛FIVE branded Rice Noodles. During inspection by the Illinois Department of Public Health, we found that some of the product was mislabeled. The products may contain dried, salted shrimp and soy, which are not included on the label. These ingredients may cause an adverse reaction for persons allergic to shrimp and/or shellfish and soy. Shrimp and/or shellfish and soy allergic symptoms may include vomiting, stomach cramps, indigestion, diarrhea, hives, shortness of breath, wheezing, cough, swelling, weak pulse, or dizziness. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to shellfish or soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled "Rice Noodles" were distributed in Chicago area retail stores only.
The product comes in a 12 ounce, Styrofoam package marked with the label “6毛FIVE Rice Noodles” on the top and was distributed between 8/16/2016 and 8/17/2016. These are freshly produced noodles. See sample product and label below.
