Vietti Foods is recalling approximately 200 cases of 15 oz cans of Southgate Hot Dog Chili Sauce, UPC 0 71846 95242 6, LOT # P642 M1217 70026. This recall has been initiated due to mislabeling because some of the cans may contain Dumplings with Chicken instead of Hot Dog Chili Sauce. The Dumplings with Chicken contain egg & wheat which are not listed on the label. People who have an allergy to eggs and/or wheat run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The recalled “Southgate Hot Dog Sauce” was distributed to 8 distributors in 16 states including Alabama, Ohio, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Missouri, Texas, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Florida, California, West Virginia, Louisiana and Georgia through retail stores. The product comes in a 15 ounce can marked with code P642 M1217 70026 on the bottom.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the cans labeled as Southgate Hot Dog Sauce contain Chicken and Dumplings that have wheat and egg which are allergens not listed on the label. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a mislabeling of cans at the end of a production run and has not affected any other product.
Consumers who have purchased a 15 ounce can of Southgate Hot Dog Sauce UPC # 0 71846 95242 6 with the code on the can bottom reading P642 M1217 70026 are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
