(US/ct/ma/me/nj/ny) Whole Foods Mixes up Chicken, Vegan Salads
- Whole Foods Market Inc. said Thursday that labels on a chicken salad and
those on a vegan version of the salad were reversed at some of its cold
food bars in the Northeast.
The mislabeled salads � a curried chicken salad and a vegan curried
"chick'n" salad � were sold in 15 stores in Connecticut, Maine,
Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York, Whole Foods said. In some
locations, the company said the salads were sold in the cold food bars
where customers can scoop food into containers, which are then weighed at
the register. In other locations, it said the salads were displayed in the
prepared food sections behind glass. The salads were sold on Tuesday and
The Food and Drug Administration noted the vegan salad contains soy, and
the curried chicken salad contains egg. It said people who have an allergy
or severe sensitivity to soy or eggs run the risk of serious or
life-threatening allergic reaction if they eat the salads.
