Annie Chun’s Japanese-Style Teriyaki Noodle Bowls have been recalled due to undeclared peanuts, which can cause a serious allergic reaction or illness in those who have a sensitivity or allergy to peanuts.

CJ Foods, Inc., a division of CJ America, Inc., of La Palma, CA, is recalling Annie Chun’s Japanese-Style Teriyaki Noodle Bowls because "the company discovered some bowls that were packaged in outer sleeves indicating Teriyaki Noodle Bowls contain Pad Thai noodle, which contains peanuts that are not listed on the ingredient list or allergen information" according to the recall notice.

The specific recalled product includes:

ANNIE CHUN’S JAPANESE-STYLE TERIYAKI NOODLE BOWL, 7.8 OZ, UPC CODE 7-65667-10387-6, LOT NUMBER 12/25/2020 in opaque white plastic bowl with paper sleeves.

These noodle bowls were distributed across the United States through retail stores and online orders. The Annie Chun's website indicates that they are available in many local Triangle-area stores including Walmart, Harris Teeter, Food Lion, Lowes CVS and more.

“At CJ Foods, the quality and safety of our products is our number one priority,” said Mike Smith, a spokesperson for CJ Foods. “We are working closely with the FDA on this voluntary recall to ensure the urgent notification of our retail customers and consumers. There have been no reports of illness or injury to date, but we are acting out of an abundance of caution to notify consumers and recall any of the affected product in the marketplace.”

If you have purchased the recalled product, contact the company or the place of purchase for a full refund. For more information, call 1-800-459-3445 from Monday – Friday, 8 am – 5 pm CT.
