Nevada Firm Recalls Chicken Products That Were Produced Without Fully Implementing a Ready-To-Eat HACCP Plan
Congressional and Public Affairs
WASHINGTON, July 4, 2014 – Kanani Foods, a Las Vegas, Nev. establishment, is recalling approximately 59 pounds of various chicken products because the products were not produced under a fully implemented Ready-To-Eat Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) plan, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The products subject to recall include: [View Labels (PDF Only)]
- 12 oz. bowls of “Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowls”
- 12 oz. bowls of “Orange Chicken Rice Bowls”
The products bear the establishment number “P-46002” inside the USDA mark of inspection and “use by” dates of 6/30/14 – 7/4/14 on the package label. The products were produced June 24-30, 2014, and then distributed for retail sale in Nevada.
The problem was discovered by an FSIS inspector on June 30, 2014. The company had a HACCP plan in place, but had no records to demonstrate that the HACCP plan had been implemented or validated or that critical times and temperatures had been met in the cooking and cooling of products. Thus, there is no assurance the product is wholesome and therefore safe for consumption. Consequently, these products may support the growth of pathogens that may be detrimental to health.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
