Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods is recalling ready-to-eat or RTE chicken salad product citing misbranding and the possible presence of undeclared almonds, a known allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service or FSIS announced.
The recalls involves around 1,202 pounds of “Ukrop’s Chicken Salad” that comes in 15-oz. round plastic containers. The RTE chicken salad item was produced on August 26, and has a sell by date of “09/02/20”.
The affected items were shipped to retail locations in North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, and West Virginia.
According to FSIS, the recalled product may contain almonds, which are not declared on the product label.
The recall was initiated after the Richmond, Virginia-based company received a consumer complaint reporting that the product contained almonds.
However, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
The FSIS has classified this as a Class I Recall, which indicates “a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”
In similar incidents, citing misbranding and the presence of undeclared allergen, TreeHouse Foods, Inc. last week recalled certain Chewy Granola Bars sold under the brand name Signature Select. In early August, Las Vegas, Nevada-based Mr. Wok Foods recalled about 200,000 pounds of meat and poultry products.
