HURLEYVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - An upstate New York company is recalling a mozzarella cheese product because it contains soy, which isn't listed on the label and could cause allergic reactions.

Formaggio Italian Cheese Specialties of Sullivan County says it's recalling about 234 pounds of fresh mozzarella with chorizo and cilantro products sold in New York and New Jersey.

It's distributed in 8-oz. packages of "FORMAGGIO Authentic Hand Rolled Fresh Mozzarella with Chorizo & Cilantro" marked "EST. 34483" and with a use-by date of May 31.
 
The problem was discovered during a federal inspection and was caused by a switch in chorizo providers.
 
There have been no reports of reactions as of Thursday.
