AdvancePierre Foods Issues Recall of Frozen Chicken Breast Products
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.
This recall affects 10-pound bulk cases of 'Our Down Home Style Chicken Breast Fritters for Chicken Frying' with a Lot Code of 5440730403 or 5440800403. The recalled products were produced on March 14 and 21, 2014. Only these lot codes and dates are affected.
The problem with the chicken was discovered by the company during an internal label review. The company then contacted the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). FSIS personnel are responsible for verifying that establishments are actively labeling the eight most common food allergens.
The recalled products bear the UPC Code '36541' and establishment number 'P-2260Y' inside the USDA mark of inspection.
These products were distributed to food service establishments in Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and Virginia.
Consumers with questions about this recall should contact Julie Moeller with AdvancePierre Foods at (580) 616-4364 or (580) 977-6948.
