Two Recalls: Tofu Burritos for Undeclared Soy, Orange Juice and Punch for Undeclared Milk

Two recalls have been issued by the FDA. One is for tofu breakfast burritos that contain undeclared soy; the other is for orange juice products that may contain undeclared milk.

Rico Brand is issuing an allergy alert on Tofu Breakfast Burrito for undeclared soy, one of the major food allergens.  No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date.

The product was distributed in the state of Utah, more specifically in retail grocery stores in Cache County, Weber County, Salt Lake County, and Utah County. The product is a 12 ounce burrito wrapped in white paper. The label contains green, yellow around the border, and orange as the labels center color. Rico Brand logo printed on the top portion of the label. The Julien date is located on the back of the burrito with these two dates: 2687 and 0028.

    Not everyone that’s consuming tofu doesn’t know it’s a soy based product? Unbelievable! I know most consumers are woefully uniformed about most everything they comsume, food, beverages, medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, etc. But eating tofu, of all things, without knowing what it is, is too incredulous too believe! More unbelievable than having to instruct and warn consumers not to use electrical appliances while they shower or bathe ! Is the general public that stupid ? So if excrement is marketed as a food product would they eat that too without first knowing wha it is?

    • Linda Larsen says:

      Again, soy is a food allergen and MUST be listed on the label according to federal law, whether it’s redundant or not. This isn’t difficult to understand.

  2. Hana Managia says:

    Seriously?! Tofu is coagulated soy milk. Is disclosure of soy in tofu required for the same shoppers who won’t buy a bag of spinach unless it’s declared “Gluten Free!”??

    • Linda Larsen says:

      No, not everyone knows that. And since soy is one of the major food allergens, labels must state that the product contains soy.
