Perfect Fit Meals is recalling approximately 3,546 pounds of chicken breast product due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The product may contain milk and wheat, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label.

The ready-to-eat chicken breast items were produced on December 20 and 21, 2016 and shipped to military commissaries and retail establishments nationwide. The products being recalled are the 10.5 ounce sealed tray package containing From the Kitchen of Cooking Light Magazine: Lemon Pepper Chicken with Use or Freeze By date of 01/21/17 and lot code 2457744.2.

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number P-827 inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The problem was discovered when a distributor notified the establishment that the chicken breast product had been incorrectly labeled. Although the product is labeled Lemon Pepper Chicken it contains a different product, "Blackened Chicken Breast", which contains milk and wheat allergens.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the recalled products.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. Instead, these products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Consumers with any additional questions or concerns about the recall can contact Mona Powell, Quality Control, at (281) 953-3200.
