WASHINGTON – Intevation Food Group, LLC launched a recall of approximately 156,924 lbs. of frozen chicken fettuccini alfredo products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service reported Nov. 22. The products contain egg which is not declared on the product label.
Plover, Wis.-based Intevation Food Group discovered the problem during an internal label review, FSIS said. There have been no reports of adverse reactions associated with the recalled products. Items affected by the recall include 18 oz. trays of “OMAHA STEAKS, 2367 Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo,” with the establishment number “P-39949” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The products were produced and packaged on various dates from May 11, 2012, through Oct. 8, 2013, and were shipped to distributors in Nebraska for further distribution through retail, Internet and catalog sales, FSIS said. The products may also be identified by the case codes 9502367 or 9802367.
