San Bernardino, CA—The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) http://www.fda.gov/ and Golden Pacific Foods, Inc. have recalled Marco Polo Brand Shrimp snacks sold as Original, Onion and Garlic, and Bar-B-Que flavored. The recall was initiated after discovering they may contain an undeclared milk and soy ingredient, as reported by the FDA.
