The 12-ounce tofu breakfast burritos made by Rico Brand and distributed in Utah grocery stores are being recalled “because the product may contain undeclared soy,” the Salt Lake City-based company announced in a news release Wednesday.
No illnesses have been reported to date, but people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products, the company said.
Rico Brand initiated the recall after it was discovered that the labels did not mention the presence of soybean. Tofu is made from the curds of soymilk. The problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s packaging processes, according to the release.
The burritos were distributed and sold in grocery stores in Salt Lake, Cache, Weber and Utah counties. Consumers can return the burritos to the place of purchase for a full refund.
The products were wrapped in white paper and bear the orange Rico Brand label with green and yellow borders. The Julien date on the back is 2687 and 0028.
Consumers with questions may contact Rico Brand at 1-801-433-0615, Monday to Friday, or email email@example.com.
