by Meat&Poultry Staff
GREELEY, Colo. – On Dec. 30, Pilgrim's Pride Corporation voluntarily began recalling approximately 180,000 lbs. of Pierce Hot & Spicy Breaded Chicken Wings and Sweet Georgia Brand Hot & Spicy Breaded Chicken Wings produced for foodservice distributors because the products may contain undeclared egg allergens.
There have been no reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of any of these products. Pilgrim’s issue was discovered by the company's quality assurance team during an allergen review.
All recalled products, which carry the item codes 1703 and 95122, were sold to foodservice distributors in 20-lb. and 10-lb. cases, respectively. They were produced in the company's plant in Boaz, Ala. (P-413), and were sold to approximately 30 foodservice distributors throughout the country. Pilgrim's is in the process of contacting all of the foodservice customers who received the recalled products.
