Bakkavor Foods USA, Inc., a San Antonio establishment, is recalling about 1,913 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken salad products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Wednesday.
The product — sold at H-E-B grocery stores — contains pecans, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The ready-to-each chicken salad products are labeled as “Curry Chicken Salad” products but contain Tarragon Chicken Salad products. The items were produced on Aug. 20.
The following products are subject to recall:
- 12 oz. clear plastic squared containers of “Simply Eat HEB Meal Simple Curry Chicken Salad” with a best by date of 08/28/2019.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-46445” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to H-E-B grocery stations.
The problem was discovered by the company during a review of production records.
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.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators. 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.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms are notifying their customers of the recall and that actions are being taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
