Oklahoma firm recalls chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens
AdvancePierre Foods, an Enid, Okla. establishment, is recalling approximately 8,730 pounds of frozen chicken breast products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The products were formulated with milk and soy, which are not declared on the label.
The products subject to recall include 10-pound bulk cases of “Our Down Home Style Chicken Breast Fritters for Chicken Frying” with Lot Code 5440730403 or 5440800403, produced March 14 and 21, 2014. Only these lot codes and dates are affected.
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.
The problem was discovered by the company during an internal label review and they contacted FSIS. The problem occurred when the establishment inadvertently used labels with an incorrect ingredient statement. FSIS personnel are responsible for verifying that establishments are actively labeling the eight most common food allergens.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
