- 12-oz. single-serve bowls of "Savoie's Cajun Singles Louisiana Pork Stew" bearing the establishment number "Est. 13587" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced on various dates from May 24, 2012 through March 21, 2013. The product packages bear "Use By" dates from May 24, 2013 through March 21, 2014.
- 12-oz. single-serve bowls of "Savoie's Cajun Singles Louisiana Chicken Stew" bearing the establishment number "P-13587" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced on various dates from June 6, 2012 through Feb. 25, 2013. The product packages bear "Use By" dates from June 6, 2013 through Feb. 25, 2014.
The products were distributed for retail sale in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.
The problem was discovered by FSIS during a routine label review. Whey and soy are subingredients in the chicken base used to make the product. The company changed chicken bases and the labels did not reflect the change in ingredients. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions associated with consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an adverse reaction should see a health care professional.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that 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/FSIS_Recalls/Open_Federal_Cases.
Consumers and the media with questions about the recall should contact Jim Miller, Acadian Fine Foods' Plant Manager, at (337) 684-6933.
