Various Kermit’s Sauces Face Recall Due To Undeclared Soy

Kermit, Inc. has announced that it is issuing a voluntary recall involving a range of its sauce products due an undeclared allergen on the product labels.

Kermit, Inc. has recently announced that it is issuing a voluntary recall involving a range of its sauce products due an undeclared allergen on the product labels. Specifically, the company had failed to indicate on its label that soy is actually one of the ingredients used in making Worcestershire Sauce, which is among the ingredients in Kermit’s various sauces.

The Kermit sauce products included in the recall are 12-oz. Kermit’s Key Lime Cocktail Sauce with a Best By date of “Sep/1/2016,” 10-oz. Kermit’s Key Lime Steak Sauce with a Best By date of “Aug/18/2016,” 16-oz. Kermit’s Sweet & Tasty Key Lime Barbeque Sauce with a Best By date of “Sep/14/2016,” 16-oz Kermit’s Medium Mannered Key Lime Barbeque Sauce with a Best By date of “Aug/11/2016,” 16-oz Kermit’s Hot & Spicy Key Lime Barbeque Sauce with a Best By date of “Aug/19/2016,” 16-oz. Kermit’s Chipotle Key Lime Barbeque Sauce with a Best By date of “Jul/24/2016” and 5.5-oz. Kermit’s P4 Hot Sauce with a Best By date “Aug/20/2016.” At the same time, Kermit, Inc. is also issuing a recall for the 12-oz. Kermit’s Key Lime Ginger Wasabi Marinade with Best By date of “Aug/31/2016.” This is because soybeans and wheat ingredients in the Soy Sauce that is in the said marinade was also undeclared.

Consumption of any product with undeclared soy and soybean ingredients may lead to serious allergic reactions that can even be life-threatening. Meanwhile, people with allergy or sensitivity to wheat protein and/or gluten who unknowingly consume a product with wheat flour may suffer from anaphylaxis. In addition, those who have sensitivity to gluten may also experience diarrhea, anemia, osteomalacia and malabsorption (steatorrhea).
