The product bears lot code 489221-2B, with a time stamp range of 23:30 to 00:30.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-45623” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a retail locations in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and Wisconsin.
The problem was discovered on April 2, 2018 when the firm was notified by a customer that the deli cup container for the curry chicken salad products had a correct label on the lid, but an incorrect label on the side of the cup. The firm inadvertently labeled the side of the containers with labels for Artichoke & Jalapeno Dip, which does not contain cashews. Therefore, tree nuts (cashews) are not listed in the ingredient statement applied to the side of the cup.
