This was due to the presence of undeclared wheat, soy, cashews and coconuts.

All other Fresh Express Southwest Chopped Kits are properly labeled and are not included in the recall.
The recalled product was distributed between June 12-18 in the following states: Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.
