Thai salad at Haggen stores recalled for shrimp not on label

The Kent company that produced a Thai noodle salad under the Haggen label at Haggen stores in Bellingham and Ferndale is recalling the product because of mislabeling.

Real Foods is voluntarily recalling 178 units of the salad because the labels don’t list allergens. The salad contains shrimp, which can be harmful to people with shelfish allergies. There are no other health risks involved with the recall, so the salad is safe to eat for those who not allergic to shellfish.

The affected product is an 8.5-ounce Thai noodle salad with Thai peanut dressing in a rigid plastic container. Haggen sells it in the areas with the fresh, pre-packaged salads and sandwiches. It should have a UPC number of 0 45009 10116 7 and a “best buy” date of Dec. 23 or earlier.

The company is also recalling a tofu pad Thai bowl sold at Fred Meyer stores outside Whatcom County for the same reason.

Consumers can return the items to the store where purchased for a full refund. People with questions can call Bill Tarazawich at 214-354-1662 for any further information between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays (except holidays).
