Recall on Chicken Products due to undeclared Allergen


This article of the WASHINGTON was last month Jan 26, 2008. There was a recall for 24,710 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast, because it contained an Italian seasoning that included milk, a known allergen. The ingredient was not declared on the label which caused Purdue Farms, Inc to recall specific allergen poultry products.

The chicken products were produced on Jan.19, 2008, and were distributed to retail establishments in Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The problem was discovered by the company. FSIS did not have any cases of illness from this recall, but if there had been health concerns for a allergic reaction they were to contact a physician.
