Taylor Farms Florida, an Orlando, Fla. establishment, is recalling approximately 732 pounds of salads with chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products contain fish (anchovies), a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The ready-to-eat (RTE) salad with chicken items were produced and packaged on Oct. 22, 2017 and Oct. 23, 2107. The following products are subject to recall:
- 9.75-oz. plastic bowls containing “Taylor Farms American Style Pasta Salad” with a “USE BY 11/01/17” and case code of TFFLD 295 L5 EA.
- 9.75-oz. plastic bowls containing “Taylor Farms American Style Pasta Salad” with a “USE BY 11/02/17” and case code of TFFLD 296 L5 JP.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 44818” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Florida.
The problem was discovered on Oct. 26, 2017, when Taylor Farms Florida received a consumer complaint about the taste of the salad dressing. After conducting an internal investigation, the firm determined that the products incorrectly contained Caesar salad dressing instead of Bacon Ranch salad dressing. The Caesar salad dressing contains anchovies.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
