Freshology Inc., a Burbank, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 111 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken salad products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The ranch salad dressing included with the product contains egg, a known allergen, which is not declared on the finished product label.
The Southwest chicken salad items were produced on March 18, 2016. The following products are subject to recall: 12-oz. plastic tray packages containing ready-to-eat “Freshology Southwest Chicken Salad” with an “EAT BY” date of 03/25/2016.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-51168” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to food service locations in California.
The problem was discovered by FSIS inspection personnel while conducting a routine food safety assessment at the establishment. FSIS personnel discovered the establishment failed to sub-list the ingredients of the included ranch dressing on the finished product label. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
