College_InnDecember 4, 2009 – PITTSBURGH – As a precautionary measure, due to mislabeling, College Inn is initiating a voluntary recall of College Inn® No MSG Chicken Broth sold in individual 14 ½ oz cans.

All other sizes and varieties of College Inn® Chicken Broth are correctly labeled and therefore are not affected by this voluntary recall.

College Inn is voluntarily recalling College Inn® No MSG Chicken Broth in individual 14 ½ oz cans due to the presence of wheat (an allergen) which was not declared in the ingredient statement. Also, the label incorrectly states that the product does not contain Monosodium Glutamate (MSG).

The following code dates and UPCs are affected:

-College Inn No MSG Chicken Broth, individual 14.5 ounce cans, all, with code dates, UPC 2400032230.

People who have bought the product can return any unused portions or bring in a receipt for a full refund.
