For those of us with a #soyallergy  looking for our PB and chocolate fix. 
Or, you can call Theo's store in Seattle and get them to ship their peanut butter cups to you. While you can't order them online, a little birdie told me that they might ship from the store.

And they are good for months....

Milk and Soy Allergy Alert: Evershing International Trading  
   
 
Evershing International Trading is voluntarily recalling Vinacafe Brand Wake Up Weasel Instant Coffee mix 3‐in‐1 after learning that the product may contain Sodium Caseinate ( a Milk derivative), a Milk allergen, and Soy extract, a Soy Allergen, that is not declared on the products' ingredient statement. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to Milk and/or Soy have the risk of serious or lifethreatening allergic reaction if they consume this coffee. There is No health risk associated with these products for individuals without an allergy to Milk or Soy.

The Vinacafe Brand Wake Up Weasel Instant Coffee mix 3‐in‐1 was distributed in California, Washington, Oregon, and Oklahoma. The Vinacafe Brand Wake Up Weasel Instant Coffee mix 3‐in‐1 was distributed by Evershing International Trading in two types of packaging, 1) 20 sachet (17g) packaged in a plastic bag, and 2) 20 sachet (17g) packaged in a paper box.

The Vinacafe Brand Wake Up Weasel Instant Coffee mix 3‐in‐1 is a new product line of Vinacafe Brand Coffee. It was recently introduced in the United States and Canada a few months ago.

Vinacafe has remedied the labeling issue by relabeling all products within their inventory, thus no future products are affected.

#Soy Allergy Alert: Shop Packaging LLC  
   
 

Shop Packaging LLC, a New Bedford, Mass. establishment, is recalling approximately 115,505 pounds of chicken wing products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products were processed with a releasing agent containing soy lecithin, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.

The chicken wing products were produced on various dates between August 8 and October 10, 2014. The following product is subject to recall:     

20-lb. bags containing “Chicken Mid-joint Wing.”
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “P-46946” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products produced were shipped to a distribution location in New York.                                

The problem was discovered by a FSIS inspector. The company sprayed a vegetable and canola oil, which contains soy lecithin, on their conveyor belt. FSIS has determined that the spray has been used since August 8th of this year.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. 

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.

#Soy Allergy alert (Trader Joe's)  
   
 
H Group, Inc. of Framingham, MA is voluntarily recalling 509 units of Trader Giotto's Caesar Salad with Caesar Dressing (SKU 05161) sold in the refrigeration section. These 509 individual salads are marked with the following date codes: "Sell By 04/6/14, 04/7/14 and 04/8/14." These items are being recalled because they may not list wheat, soy, egg and fish (anchovy) in the ingredients. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to these allergens run the risk of serious or life-threatening reaction if they consume this product. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The product being recalled is packaged in an 8.5 oz. clear plastic clamshell container and the “Sell By” date is printed on the front of the package in the left hand corner. The 509 possibly affected salads were distributed only to Trader Joe's stores located in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Northern Virginia, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C.

The voluntary recall was initiated by H Group, Inc. after Trader Joe's discovered affected packages for the Caesar Salad with Caesar Dressing did not declare wheat, soy, egg and fish (anchovy) on the label. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in H Group's packaging processes in which a different salad label was affixed to the bottom of some of the packages. The issue has been corrected.

Customers who have purchased Trader Giotto's Caesar Salad with Caesar Dressing may return it to Trader Joe's for a full refund or dispose of it. Customers with questions may contact H Group, Inc. at (508) 361-1518 from 8:00A.M.-4:00P.M. EST, Monday-Friday.
