Salads sold on Oregon-Vancouver trains recalled over undeclared soy

Tuna & Garden Salad Mixer, which was distributed for sale on Amtrak Cascade trains running between Eugene, Ore., and Vancouver, has been recalled because it may contain undeclared soybeans.

The recall affects products stamped with a due date of March 16, 2007 or earlier, according to the manufacturer, Gretchen's Shoebox Express of Seattle.

The company said the product was packaged in a clear three-compartment plastic container identified by a large red label on top, stating Gretchen's Shoebox Express.

No illnesses have been reported. However, people who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

An investigation showed the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in its production and packaging process and has since been corrected, the company said.

Consumers who bought Gretchen's Shoebox Express Tuna & Garden Salad Mixer are urged to return it to the place of purchase for full refund. Consumers with questions can call Gretchen's at 206-623-8194.
