AdvancePierre Foods has issued a recall of 8,730 pounds of frozen chicken breast products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. The products were formulated with milk and soy, which are not declared on the product label.
Those who have an allergy to milk or soy run the risk of a severe or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.
