Tennessee Firm Recalling Hundreds of Pounds of Chicken
A Tennessee firm says it is recalling approximately 530 pounds of chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Perdue Foods LLC, a Monterey, said that the product has “eggs, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.”
“The ready-to-cook chicken breast tenderloin fritters were inadvertently labeled with the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritter label. The chicken breast tenderloin fritters contain egg whites and the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritters do not. The ready-to-cook chicken tenderloin fritter items were produced on Dec. 6, 2017,” the recall notice posted on the USDA website states.
The products include 10-pound boxes containing two 5 pound plastic bags with the box labeled “CHEF REDI HOMESTYLE CHICKEN TENDER FRITTER, RTC – LARGE” and has a case code of 7374. They have the establishment number “P-11507” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the product.
These items were shipped to places in Florida, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.
“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider,” the USDA said. “Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.”
