Misbranding of chicken products leads to Texas recall

Posted

Taylor Farms Texas Inc., a Dallas, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 1,079 pounds of Caesar salad with chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains anchovies, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.

The ready-to-eat Caesar salad with chicken item was produced on May 8, 2019. The following products are subject to recall: 9.75 oz. clear plastic packages containing “H.E.B. SHAKE, RATTLE & BOWL CAESAR SALAD with CHICKEN” and a “BEST BY” date of MAY 18, 2019 represented on the label.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-34733” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail stores in Texas.

The problem was discovered by a retail store when the mislabeled products were being unpackaged to be placed on the retail store shelves.

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.
