FDA: Undisclosed Soy in Product Means Recall

The FDA has announced that New Chapter Inc. is voluntarily recalling a limited number of packages of its 90-count Probiotic Elderberry dietary supplement because it may contain an undisclosed allergen -- soy. 
"People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product," the FDA said Thursday. " There have been no illnesses reported to date in connection with this product. This product is a food safety concern only for people who are allergic to soy."
The product is packaged in a 90-count amber glass jar with an outer cardboard carton that reads:
Probiotic Elderberry
Lot#: 01230049332
Expiration date: 01/31/15 (located on the bottom of the box and on the side of the bottle) 
:  7-27783-00123-8
