- 1.5-lb. plastic heat and serve packages containing CREATE COMMON GOOD Albertsons Jambalaya with Chicken and Andouille with the following sell-by dates: 7/19/15, 7/21/15, 7/24/15, 7/26/15, 7/28/15, 7/31/15, 8/02/15, 08/04/15, 8/07/15, 8/09/15, and 8/11/15.
These products, bearing establishment number EST. 45453 inside the USDA mark of inspection, were shipped to a distributor in Idaho.
The problem was discovered when an FSIS inspector discovered that the establishment used beef and cheese sausage rather than Andouille sausage in the product.
FSIS and the company have received 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 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.
