GHSE, LLC Recalls Chicken Products Due To Misbranding And Undeclared Allergen
WASHINGTON, July 1, 2016 GHSE, LLC, a Green Cove Springs, Fla. establishment, is recalling approximately 5,682 pounds of salad products containing chicken due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agricultures Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains wheat, a known allergen not declared on the product label.
The ready-to-eat salads with chili-seasoned chicken items were produced on various dates between May 11, 2016 and June 29, 2016. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF Only)]
- 11-oz. plastic clam shell containers with TRADER JOSES MEXICALI INSPIRED SALAD WITH CHILI SEASONED CHICKEN with BEST BY dates 05/18/16 07/03/16.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number EST. P-45781 inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Southern Virginia.
The problem was discovered by a plant quality assurance technician during a routine check of ingredients. The salads have the correct label on the top of the package, but exhibit an incorrect back label that does not include soy sauce as an ingredient; the source of the wheat. As a result, wheat is not sub-listed in the ingredients statement or in the Contains allergen declaration.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
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.
