Rao's Chicken & Gnocchi Soup Recall: The Dietary Risks You Should Know
By Julia Mullaney
East Harlem restaurant Rao's has achieved national recognition for its store-brand Rao's Homemade sauces, soups, and other Italian-style products. However, Rao's Homemade soups put out a statement in January 2023 that they were recalling 16-ounce jars of the Chicken & Gnocchi soup, because the contents had been dangerously mislabeled.
On January 30, Rao's Homemade recalled certain 16-ounce jars of its Chicken & Gnocchi soup, because they were packaged with the brand's Vegetable Minestrone variety. The Vegetable Minestrone contains egg, whereas the Chicken & Gnocchi label excludes it, which could be dangerous for anyone with an egg allergy.
"The product is packaged in a 16-ounce, clear glass jar marked with the following code date printed on the top of the jar: Best By NOV 15 2024 EST 251 Code Date 2320 MDV 046030Z009, UPC 747479400015. Only soup with Code Date 2320 MDV 046030Z009 is part of the recall," the announcement read, and consumers can get a full refund upon returning the soup to the store.
