Annie Chun’s Japanese-Style Teriyaki Noodle bowls recalled due to ‘undeclared peanuts’

CJ Foods, Inc., a division of CJ America, Inc., of La Palma, CA, is voluntarily recalling Annie Chun’s Japanese-Style Teriyaki Noodle Bowls because it may contain undeclared peanuts. Use of this product may cause serious allergic reaction or illness in people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanut, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

The noodle bowls were distributed across the United States and reached consumers through retail stores and online order.

  • ANNIE CHUN’S JAPANESE-STYLE TERIYAKI NOODLE BOWL, 7.8 OZ, UPC CODE 7-65667-10387-6, LOT NUMBER 12/25/2020 in opaque white plastic bowl with paper sleeves

“At CJ Foods, the quality and safety of our products is our number one priority,” said Mike Smith, a spokesperson for CJ Foods. “We are working closely with the FDA on this voluntary recall to ensure the urgent notification of our retail customers and consumers. There have been no reports of illness or injury to date, but we are acting out of an abundance of caution to notify consumers and recall any of the affected product in the marketplace.”

The voluntary recall was initiated because the company discovered some bowls that were packaged in outer sleeves indicating Teriyaki Noodle Bowls contain Pad Thai noodle, which contains peanuts that are not listed on the ingredient list or allergen information.

The company has reached out to customers to cease and destroy the products that were not distributed yet and to track and destroy products already in commerce.

Consumers who have purchased an affected product should discard it and contact the company or the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers seeking additional information can call 1-800-459-3445 from Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. CT.
