Canyon Creek Soup Company has issued a recall for a product that was not presented at the U.S. point of entry for inspection.

The Edmonton, Alberta manufacturer's recall applies to about 7,275 pounds of meatball soup. Without the benefit of a proper inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) cannot guarantee the safety of the products.

The shipment in question included 291 cases of Vietnamese inspired Pho Bo Vein containing broth with meatballs, rice noodles, sriracha packets, and hoisin packets, bearing package code 16AL20 or 16AL24. The product also bears establishment number EST. 422 inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The items were shipped to retail establishments in California.

The problem was discovered when a Customs and Border Protection official notified FSIS personnel that the items had been shipped without inspection.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions to this item.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Customers with questions about this recall can contact Terry Alty at (780) 463-2991.
