People who have milk, soy, and/or egg allergies risk life-threatening reactions if these products are consumed. To date, no illnesses have been reported.

Hasta Be Pasta of Arcata, California, has initiated a voluntary recall of these products after a routine inspection by CDPH identified the labeling deficiency. 

The cooked pasta noodles with sauce and grated cheese were packaged in plastic containers with a clear lid. The spreads are blended ingredients and were packaged in clear plastic containers. The wraps are wheat tortillas filled with spreads, rolled and wrapped in clear cellophane. These products were distributed to retail stores in the Humboldt County, California area.

Pictures of the recalled pasta, spreads and wraps are available on the CDPH’s website. Consumers in possession of any of these products should return them to the place of purchase for a refund or dispose of them in the trash.  

Consumers who have experienced an allergic reaction after eating these products should consult their health care provider. Anyone observing these products being offered for sale is encouraged to call CDPH toll-free complaint line at (800) 495-3232.
