In a press statement, Rising Moon Organics, under the supervision and in conjunction with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), announced the recall of Mediterranean Garlic & Herb Ravioli 8-ounce packages due to an incorrect back labeling on some packages that resulted in an undeclared soy allergen. The front of the retail package is correctly labeled ‘Mediterranean Garlic & Herb Ravioli, 8-oz’, however the back of the package was labeled incorrectly as ‘Four Cheese Tortelloni’. The date code affected by this recall is SELL BY APR 05 2012. Consumers are being asked to return the product to their place of purchase for a full refund.
