The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently announced a salad, wrap and salad bar tray recall for products sold at Whole Foods Markets and Whole Foods Markets 365 in Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma. Representatives from GHSW, LLC (the manufacturers of the recalled items) did not immediately return Red Tricycle’s request for comment.
The current recall was issued after the discovery of an undeclared potential allergen. The mayonnaise used to make some of the products may contain soy. If you or your child have a soy allergy, read on for more recall information.
Recalled Product Description: GHSW Salads, Wraps and Salad Bar Trays
The products in this recall were sold in two Whole Foods Markets 365 in Texas and at various Whole Foods Markets in Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas. These include Classic Potato Salad, Classic Tuna Salad Wrap, Smoked Mozzarella Pasta Salad, Traditional Egg Salad, Yellowfin Tuna Salad, Broccoli Crunch, Veggie Crudite Bowl with Asparagus and Bell Peppers and Veggie Crudite Bowl with Jicama and Mini Peppers.

Why These Salad Products Were Recalled
GHSW found during a routine label review that the products’ packaging did not properly declare soy. While some of the products do contain the words “May Contain Soy,” all of the labels in the recall fail to correctly declare this ingredient, putting anyone with a soy allergy at risk.
There are currently no known injuries or adverse reactions caused by these products.
How to Tell if Your Salad Product or Wrap is Part of the Recall
The recall only includes products sold at select Whole Foods and Whole Foods 365 stores in the states of Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma. Visit the FDA’s website for a full description of each product on the recall list.
What Parents Can Do
If you have one of the affected products and you, your child or anyone else in your household has a soy allergy, don’t eat it. Throw the product away or bring it back to the place of purchase for a refund. You can call GHSW with questions at 888-449-9386 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. through 4 p.m. or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
