Turkey Gravy Recalled for Contamination with Allergen

(AmericanProsperity.com) – The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued on November 22 a recall on turkey gravy from the Hy-Vee range of Seneca Foods Corporation. The agency pointed out that some customers around the country could experience a “serious” or even a “life-threatening” reaction to the products’ contents.

FDA officials explained that many glass jars of the corporations’ Hy-Vee Turkey Gravy had beef gravy, which means that its soy allergen was not properly labeled. Health experts noted that if any user that has an allergic reaction to soy consumes the wrongly-described turkey gravy, they could experience numerous reactions. They also said that people who buy pantry staples or similar types of products for Christmas and holidays should remember about the recall and pay attention to what the FDA publishes.

The agency also explained that the reactions people can suffer are “unpredictable,” and noted that anaphylactic shock is a potential risk. The research center pointed out that shock can be “extremely dangerous” because it involves numerous symptoms that include reduced blood flow and difficulty breathing.

On November 2, Seneca Foods Corporation published a statement saying that it wasn’t aware of any report of health issues or illness suffered by any person because of the mislabeled product. In the statement, which was sent to the FDA, the company said that it would announce a voluntary recall of the gravy in glass jars that contain beef gravy as a precautionary measure.

Different reports pointed out that the official recall impacted nearly one percent of turkey gravy in all Hy-Vee stores in the country. The FDA recommended users check the turkey gravy in 12oz glass jars that include the 75450-03608 UPC, and the A3CG162M A3CG192M lot code.

The research center added that every food producer in the United States decides to recall their products when they are mislabeled or when the food they are selling could present health hazards to consumers. The agency added that the health risk can exist when the good is “contaminated.”
