Ghiringhelli Specialty Foods, Inc., a Vallejo, Calif., establishment, is recalling approximately 2,444 pounds of poultry products due to mislabeling and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced recently. The products contain soy, wheat, and fish (anchovies), known allergens which are not declared on the product label. Additionally, the Caesar Salad products usually have the statement “May Contain Traces of Shellfish.” This statement is missing on the recalled products.
The chicken Caesar Salad items were produced on June 22. The following products are subject to recall:
- 9-OZ. Plastic clamshell with clear lid containers of “TRADER GIOTTO’S CAESAR SALAD WITH CHICKEN BREAST” bearing plant number P-17156 and “USE BY 06/28” on the label.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-17156” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
These items were shipped to retail locations in California, Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington state.
The company notified FSIS of the mislabeling on June 25, after the company received notice of the issue from a customer. The salads have the correct label on the top of the package, but exhibit an incorrect back label for “Trader Joe's Chicken & Roast Beet Salad."
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.
