WASHINGTON, April 19, 2014–Prime Pak Foods, a Gainesville, Ga., establishment, is recalling approximately 24,000 pounds of fully cooked breaded chicken breast products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products were formulated with egg and wheat, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label.
The following products are subject to recall: [View Label]
The products were produced from Dec. 12, 2012 to March 21, 2014. The products bear the establishment number “P-9165” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were distributed to hotels, restaurants and institutions nationwide.
The problem was discovered by an FSIS inspector who notified the company on April 17, 2014. After investigation by the firm, it was determined that the company didn’t list all ingredients on their products’ packaging labels.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to ensure 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: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact John Appling at (770) 536-8708, ext. 1105 or via e-mail at: email@example.com.
