Whole Foods Market Recalls Noodle Salad

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says Whole Foods Market is recalling Thai Soba Noodle Salad due to an undeclared soy allergen.

On Friday, the FDA announced in a press release that Whole Foods Market removed Thai Soba Noodle Salad's from all stores in five states.

The product which could be found in the 'Health Starts Here' section of the stores will no longer be available in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

An ingredient that Thai Soba Noodle contains is edamame. Those who have allergy or severe sensitivity to soy can experience a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction when consuming this product, said the FDA.

The 9 ounce package label reads 'Whole Foods Market Thai Soba Noodle Salad' and has a use by date of May 25, 2014.

Whole Foods Market said anyone who has purchased the product can bring their receipt to the store and receive a full refund.

Aside from removing the product from store shelves, Whole Foods Market has also announced the change publicly.

Signs are posted in affected Whole Food Market stores to inform customers, said the FDA.

Anyone who has questions about the recall can contact their local store or call 617-492-5500 during the hours of  8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
