Perdue Foods Recalls Chicken Products Due to Misbranding and Undeclared Allergens
Consumers with an allergy or sensitivity to eggs risk a serious reaction if they consume these products
Perdue Foods has announced the recall of approximately 530 pounds of chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. The affected products contain eggs—a known allergen—that are not listed on the ingredient label.
What's the risk?
Consumers with an allergy or sensitivity to eggs run the risk of a serious or life-threatening reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled ready-to-cook chicken breast tenderloin fritters were inadvertently labeled with the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritter label. The chicken breast tenderloin fritters contain egg whites and the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritters do not.
Recalled Product Details
The impacted products—produced on December 6, 2017—can be identified as follows: 10-lb. boxes containing two 5 lb. plastic bags with the box labeled as CHEF REDI HOMESTYLE CHICKEN TENDER FRITTER, RTC – LARGE. The boxes bear a case code of 7374 and an establishment number of P-11507 inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products were shipped to food service locations in Florida, Maryland, and Washington D.C.
To date, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
What should consumers do?
Consumers who have purchased any of the recalled chicken products are urged not to consume them. The products should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase.
