Shuckman’s Fish Co. of Louisville, KY is updating their recall of its 8 ounce packages of Mooney’s Kentucky Bourbon Cheese and ValuMarket Beer Cheese Spread because they may contain undeclared soy and anchovy puree.

People who have allergies to soy and fish run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. The products in question are:

Mooney’s Kentucky Bourbon Cheese, 8 oz plastic container, Lot 010511 Sell By 04/05/2011, Lot 012111 Sell By 04/19/11; UPC 8 28260 10038 0

ValuMarket Beer Cheese Spread, 8 oz plastic container, Lot 91610 Sell by 11-16-2010, Lot 92810 Sell By 11-28-10, Lot 101810 Sell By 12-18-2010, Lot 102210 Sell By 12-22-10, Lot 111210 Sell By 01/12/11, Lot 112610 Sell By 01/26/11, Lot 121310 Sell By 03/13/11, Lot 011411 Sell By 04/14/11, Lot 011711 Sell By 04/17/2011; UPC 0 28260 12501 1.

Products are sold to retail stores in Kentucky. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the soy and anchovy puree containing products were distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of soy and anchovy puree. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company’s production and packaging processes.

Consumers who have purchased the products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-502-775-6478 Monday through Friday 8:00a.m to 3:00p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
