Phil’s Fresh Foods Inc., a Boulder, Colo., establishment is recalling approximately 15,760 pounds of frozen chicken and steak fajita products due to misbranding, as the chicken fajita packages may contain steak, and the steak fajita packages may contain chicken, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.
The products subject to recall include 7-ounce cartons of “Evol. Burritos Fire Grilled Chicken Fajita” and “Evol. Burritos Fire Grilled Steak Fajita.” The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 21015” or “P-21015” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the carton, and an identifying lot number of “03311” on the inner plastic packaging. The products were produced between Feb. 2, 2011 and Feb. 3, 2011, and were distributed to retail establishments nationwide.
The problem was discovered by a consumer with a beef allergy who had an allergic reaction after consuming the product and reported it to the company. The problem occurred because the company inadvertently switched the two products during the packaging process. No additional reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products have been received.
