Health alert issued for Kirkland Signature chicken tortilla soup
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service issued a public health alert Wednesday for a ready-to-eat Kirkland Signature chicken tortilla soup product because the label falsely describes the product as gluten-free.
The Food Safety and Inspection Service issued the alert to ensure that consumers with reactions to blunt are aware the product couldn’t be consumed.
A recall was not requested because the affected product is no longer available for purchase. Instead, the public health alert aims to inform consumers who have reactions to gluten not to consume the product.
The ready-to-eat chicken tortilla soup item was produced July 26, 2023, and shipped to retail locations in Idaho, Alaska, California, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
The following products are subject to the public health alert:

The products bear bear establishment number “P-18468” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consuming the chicken tortilla soup product, according to a news release issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
