Perdue Foods LLC Recalls Chicken Products due to Misbranding and Undeclared Allergens
WASHINGTON, January 23, 2018 Perdue Foods LLC, a Monterey, Tenn. establishment, is recalling approximately 530 pounds of chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agricultures Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The following products are subject to recall: [
- 10-lb. boxes containing two 5 lb. plastic bags with the box labeled CHEF REDI HOMESTYLE CHICKEN TENDER FRITTER, RTC LARGE with the case code of 7374.
