Rice ramen noodle soup cups are being recalled by Lotus Foods due to fire and burn hazards

Ramen Noodle SoupLotus Foods is recalling about 239,000 rice ramen noodle soup cups.

The paper soup cup’s labeling incorrectly instructs consumers to use the microwave for cooking, which may cause fires and burns.

Lotus Foods has received 12 reports of the soup cups becoming extremely hot and/or sparking or catching fire during microwaving, including one report of a minor burn. Reported damage has been limited to the noodle cups.

The recall includes Lotus Foods two-ounce ramen noodle soups packaged in paper cups that aren’t microwave safe. The recalled soup cups contain organic brown rice noodles and were sold in three flavors; red miso rice ramen noodle soup, masala curry rice ramen noodle soup, and tom yum rice noodle soup. The UPC code is printed on the back side of the cup on the left of the front panel.
