Nearly 30,700 pounds of bacon bits are being recalled because they could be contaminated with soy allergens.

The problem was discovered when a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) inspector found that a releasing agent used on contact surfaces during production included soy lecithin.

Upon reviewing the labels, the inspector noticed that that the soy ingredient was not on the ingredients list.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

The product was produced on various dates from Jan. 15, 2015, through March 10, 2015, and bears the establishment number Est. 45361 inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The product was shipped to other manufacturers in North Carolina and Ohio for further processing into salad kits.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Duncan Lavery at dlavery@llfoodsinc.com or (714) 254-1430.
