B. Roberts Foods, a Charlotte, N.C., establishment, is recalling approximately 202 pounds of individual serving grilled chicken entrées due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.  The product contains milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label. 

The  product subject to recall includes 10-oz. (248 g) refrigerated packages of "Harris Teeter, Fresh Foods Market, Deli-Bakery, All Natural Grilled Chicken Strips (minimally processed, no artificial ingredients)"

The top label on the packaging incorrectly reads "All Natural Grilled Chicken Strips (minimally processed, no artificial ingredients), Net Wt 10 oz. (248g)" and the bottom label incorrectly reads "Grilled Chicken Breast with Lemon Spaghettini" when both labels should read  "Grilled Chicken Breast with Sundried Tomato Pasta." The product was produced on July 10, 2014, and bears the establishment number "Est. 19198" inside the USDA mark of inspection with package code "50223" and "Sell By" date of "07/27/14".

The product was distributed to retail stores in Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Washington, D.C.

The problem was discovered by a grocery store employee who saw that the product was incorrectly labeled. The grocery store reported the error to B. Roberts Foods, which confirmed the "Grilled Chicken Breast with Sundried Tomato Pasta" entrées were incorrectly labeled due to an employee error. In addition to the incorrect labels, the recalled product is made with milk, which is a known allergen and must be noted on the label. 

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
