Stop & Shop Recalls Butternut Squash in Prepared Turkey and Ham Dinner

Following a recall from its vendor, the Stop & Shop Supermarket Company has announced it is recalling all butternut squash sides that are packaged with the supermarket chain’s prepared turkey and ham holiday dinners.

The recall applies to all 24-ounce sides of butternut squash packaged in the holiday meals and was issued immediately after Stop & Shop’s vendor, Simmering Soup, Inc. recalled the product because of an undeclared egg allergen and quality concerns. The recall applies only to butternut squash that comes as part of the packaged holiday dinners and not to squash sold in the prepared foods department.

To date, no illnesses have been reported due to the recalled product.

Customers who have already picked up their holiday meals are asked to discard the two containers of squash and return to the store either before or after the holiday, where they will receive a $12 refund to enable them to purchase an alternative side dish of their choice. Customers who have not yet picked up their meals may do so as planned—the squash will be removed, and the price of the meal will be reduced by $12.

No other items in the meals are being recalled besides the squash, and customers are asked not to return the entire meal. All other components of the holiday meals meet Stop & Shop’s high quality standards.

Customers with questions may contact Stop & Shop Customer Service starting Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. at (800) 767-7772. The call center is open from 9 – 5, Monday through Friday. Customers can also visit Stop & Shop’s website at www.stopandshop.com.
