Misbranded chicken wings recalled
Shop Packaging LLC, a New Bedford, Mass. establishment, is recalling approximately 115,505 pounds of chicken wing products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The products were processed with a releasing agent containing soy lecithin, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.
The chicken wing products were produced on various dates between August 8 and October 10, 2014. The following product is subject to recall: 20-lb. bags containing “Chicken Mid-joint Wing.” The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “P-46946” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products produced were shipped to a distribution location in New York.
The problem was discovered by a FSIS inspector. The company sprayed a vegetable and canola oil, which contains soy lecithin, on their conveyor belt. FSIS has determined that the spray has been used since August 8th of this year.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
