More than 3 million pounds of meat products recalled for undeclared allergens

Several popular ready-to-eat meat products have been recalled for misbranding and undeclared allergens. 

Tyson Foods Inc., is recalling approximately 2,485,374 pounds of breaded chicken products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Saturday.

The products could contain milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label. Affected products were produced between August 17, 2016, and January 14, 2017. 

Gourmet Boutique LLC, has recalled about 294,744 pounds of their ready-to-eat chicken products for the same reason. Affected products were produced between February 3 and June 2, 2017. 

Chef Boyardee products were also found to have undeclared milk products, and Conagra Brands, Inc., has recalled about 700,125 pounds of spaghetti and meatball products. Affected products were produced between January 5 and January 12, 2017.

The problems were discovered on June 6, when a common ingredient supplier notified each of the companies that the bread crumbs they sent them may have contained an undeclared dairy product.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions to the products yet, according to the FSIS. Anyone concerned about an adverse effect related to the products should contact a health care provider, and the products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
