Chicken breast strips product contains allergens not declared on product label

Foster Farms is recalling about 6,165 pounds of ready-to-eat grilled chicken breast strips that contain wheat and soy, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced on May 21. 
Recalled were 4.5 lb. cases containing 12, 6-oz. trays of boneless and skinless with rib meat, 97 percent fat free, with an identifying case code of "000606."

The recalled product bears the establishment number "P-20923" inside the USDA mark of inspection and a use-by date of "JUN 22 2013" printed on each tray. The product was produced on April 23 and distributed to retail establishments in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington. 
The problem was discovered as a result of a customer complaint and occurred because the company inadvertently used labels for another chicken product it produces that does not contain wheat or soy. The Food Safety and Inspection Service and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions associated with consumption of these products.
