Allergy risk in misbranded edamame hummus wraps

019-2016-labelGrapevine, TX-based Flying Food Group LLC  has recalled 1,006 pounds of Edamame Hummus Wrap products because of adulteration and misbranding, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The problem was discovered after a complaint from a Starbucks store. As soon as Starbucks confirmed the supplier labeling error, the implicated product was removed from the 559 Texas and Oklahoma stores that received it.

The Edamame Hummus Wrap products are mislabeled and may contain Thai Style Chicken Peanut Wraps made with peanuts and tree nuts, which are known allergens but are not declared on the product label.

The Edamame Hummus Wrap products were assembled on Feb. 16, 2016, and are stamped with an ENJOY BY 02/19 date.  The following product is subject to recall:

  • 6.8-ounce  container of Starbucks brand “Edamame Hummus Wrap.

The recalled products do not contain an establishment number on the label, as the Edamame Hummus Wraps are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The products should contain hummus, but may contain chicken, which is the jurisdiction of FSIS under the Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA). These items were distributed to retail locations in Texas and Oklahoma.

The company is not aware of any  adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them.
