Blount Fine Foods, located at 2200 Redbud Blvd., McKinney, recalled approximately 6,690 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken tortilla soup May 23, according to an U.S. Department of Agriculture news release. The recalled soup contained chicken products that "may be contaminated with extraneous materials, specifically plastic," according to the release. The 16-ounce plastic bowls contain Panera Bread at Home Chicken Tortilla Soup and were produced April 26 with a use by date of July 5. Lot codes printed on the bottom of the container will read 042619-3V or 042619-4V.
The product was made in McKinney, President of Blount Fine Foods Todd Blount said in an email to Community Impact Newspaper.
"It was a small incidence in a single batch, with the second batch recalled for good measure after a consumer found the plastic," Blount said in the email. "There was not any injury. ... It is a Class II—low risk—voluntary recall and was done to in a short window of time out of an abundance of caution."
