2,000 Pounds of This Produce are Being Recalled, FDA Says
A recall of 1-pound and 25-pound bags of Maine Grains Organic Yellow Peas has been issued because they may contain undeclared soybeans, according to a notice from the FDA. Anyone with an allergy or sensitivity to soybeans could suffer a life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product.
The pea recall was initiated because organic soybeans of a similar size, shape, and color to the organic yellow peas "were mistakenly shipped by a farmer supplier to Maine Grains, Inc. and were used to fulfill orders of organic yellow peas," the FDA says.

A large amount of the 2,000 pounds of the yellow peas that are being recalled were sent to New York City repackaged under the GrowNYC brand label. They were also distributed in the Northeast and online at mainegrains.com. All organic yellow peas included in the recall were sold between Oct. 17, 2019 and Nov. 1, 2020.
The 1-pound bags come in clear cellophane and are sold as "Crop Rotation Organic Yellow Peas." The bag has a white sticker on the back with the lot number ending with 3YP19. The 25-pound bags are packaged in bulk and also have a white sticker with the lot code 3YP19. No illnesses related to the recall have been reported.
Maine Grains is based out of Skowhegan, Maine, and sells other products like organic oats, different types of flour, beans, and more.
