WASHINGTON – Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc., a Kenosha, Wis. establishment, is recalling approximately 16,320 pounds of chili and soup products that may be contaminated with foreign matter, specifically hard plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The Ready-to-Eat chili and soup items were produced and packaged on October 3, 2017 with a “Sell by” date of December 2, 2017. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF Only)]

  • 24-lb. boxes containing six 4-lb. bags of “Meat and Bean Soup in Tomato Base” with lot code 354191-2767.
  • 24-lb. boxes containing six 4-lb. bags of “Santa Fe Style Turkey and White Chicken Chili with Beans” with lot code 354464-2767.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 33997” or “P-33997” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Illinois and Wisconsin. The products are sold to retail stores to be prepared for sale to consumers in the soup bar area.

The problem was discovered on October 16, 2017, when Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc. was notified by a member of the firm’s food safety team that plastic foreign material had been discovered in a bag of Meat and Bean Soup in Tomato Base. FSIS was notified of the incident on October 17, 2017. The firm decided to expand the recall to include all of the soups produced on October 3, 2017.                  

There have been no confirmed reports of 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. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Roundy’s Customer Service Center at 1-866-768-6397. Media with questions about the recall can contact Jim Hyland, Vice President of Communications and Public Affairs, at (414) 231-5811.
