It's Recall Time for Pat O'Brien's Bloody Mary Mix

If you're allergic to soy or wheat and recently bought a bottle of Pat O'Brien's Bloody Mary Mix, you probably shouldn't drink it. The company that makes the mix, Sirocco Enterprises, has issued a recall for the 1 liter bottles of the stuff because it contained "undeclared soy and wheat." People with allergies "run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products." Fun.

At any rate, Sirocco says all this trouble was caused by a change in ingredients. Which raises the question: why in the hell is there soy and wheat in a bloody mary? That's not how they're supposed to be made. And also, couldn't all of this have been avoided if they had just changed the labels as well?
