291 Cases - containing ten 2.56 lb. plastic soup package kits labeled “Vietnamese inspired Pho Bo Vein” containing broth with meatballs, rice noodles, sriracha packets, and hoisin packets bearing package code 16AL20 or 16AL24.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 422” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail outlets in California.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
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.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
