Undeclared allergen prompts recall
by Meat&Poultry Staff
WASHINGTON – Galant Food Company, San Leandro, Calif., recalled approximately 420 lbs. of Chicken Provance French puff pastry due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service reported.
The products are covered in an egg wash glaze that was not declared on the product label. Egg is a known allergen.
FSIS said a food safety assessment at the establishment, which recently relocated, revealed the problem. The problem occurred due to difficulties with label printing equipment at the company's new location. No adverse reactions have been reported.
The product affected by the recall includes 4-oz. of “Chicken Provance French Puff” bearing the establishment number “EST. 9014” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label. Identifying case codes are: 7193, 9053 and 9093. The products were produced on July 19, Sept. 5 and Sept. 9, 2013 and shipped to restaurants and cafes in the San Francisco Bay area.
The company previously recalled chicken calzone products in an egg wash glaze that was not declared on the label.
