Individual 14.5 ounce cans of College Inn No MSG Chicken Broth with UPC 2400032230 are affected.
Two supermarket chains pulled College Inn No MSG Chicken Broth from store shelves after Del Monte Foods Co. issued a voluntary recall for mislabeling, the Associated Press reports.
The broth contains a wheat allergen left off the label in addition to monosodium glutamate, a flavor enhancer.
Stop & Shop Supermarket Co. and Giant Food Supermarkets both pulled the product over the weekend, the AP said. Del Monte told Slashfood in a statement it had not received reports of illness related to consumption of the mislabeled broth.
Cans included in the recall are 14.5 ounces with the UPC 2400032230.
"College Inn values the health and well-being of its consumers, and regrets this situation," Del Monte spokeswoman Chrissy Stengel told Slashfood in a statement.

All other sizes and varieties of College Inn broth are correctly labeled, Giant said in its Saturday statement.
