The product contains milk, a known allergen, and beef, both of which were not declared on the product label.                                                                                                           

The following items, produced on various dates between July 15 and August 7, 2015, are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF only)]

  • 1.5-lb. plastic heat and serve packages containing “CREATE COMMON GOOD Albertson’s 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.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall can contact Kelly Parker, Director of Community Engagement, at (208) 258-6800.

Consumers with food safety questions can "Ask Karen," the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov or via smartphone at m.askkaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday.
