Allergen suffers need to check the labels of all their food before they are able to eat it, which makes it extremely dangerous for companies to accidentally mislabel their products. One product, a cheese spread, is being recalled for just that, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration .
Mooney’s Kentucky Bourbon Cheese and ValuMarket Beer Cheese Spread are being recalled because they could have soy and anchovy puree that are not listed ingredients on the packaging. Consumers who are allergic to soy and seafood could be harmed if they eat this product.
The recalled products include: “Mooney’s Kentucky Bourbon Cheese, 8 oz plastic container, Lot 010511 Sell By 04/05/2011, Lot 012111 Sell By 04/19/11; UPC 8 28260 10038 0” and “ValuMarket Beer Cheese Spread, 8 oz plastic container, Lot 91610 Sell by 11-16-2010, Lot 92810 Sell By 11-28-10, Lot 101810 Sell By 12-18-2010, Lot 102210 Sell By 12-22-10, Lot 111210 Sell By 01/12/11, Lot 112610 Sell By 01/26/11, Lot 121310 Sell By 03/13/11, Lot 011411 Sell By 04/14/11, Lot 011711 Sell By 04/17/2011; UPC 0 28260 12501 1.”
The cheese was sold in Kentucky, according to the FDA.
