A labeling error on a line of Whole Foods Market soup has led to a recall because what was being sold as Roasted Garlic and Eggplant Soup really was Lobster Bisque, "which poses the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if consumed by customers with a shellfish or milk allergy," the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
The soup was sold in 24-ounce containers in Massachusetts and five other states between Saturday and Monday. The soup has a sell-by date of October 4, 2012.
If you bought the soup, you can return it to Whole Foods for a refund. If you have a question, call your local Whole Foods or 617-492-5500 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
