Chef salads recalled due to undeclared allergen
Real Foods LLC, a Kent, Wash., establishment, is recalling approximately 308 pounds of Chef Salad with Ham and Turkey due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains fish (anchovies), a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.
The following product is subject to recall: 12.5-ounce clear plastic containers of “CHEF SALAD WITH HAM (WATER ADDED) AND TURKEY.”
The product was produced on Dec. 6, 2014. The product bears the establishment number “34834” inside the USDA mark of inspection and has “Sell by: 12/11/2014” printed on the product label. The product was shipped to retail outlets in Oregon and Washington.
The problem was discovered by a customer, who notified the company. The product is labeled for Ranch dressing, but contains a Caesar salad dressing pouch. The Caesar salad dressing contains anchovies. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
