WASHINGTON – Gourmet Kitchen, Inc., Neptune, NJ, recalled a variety of beef and chicken appetizers, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) reported.

Gourmet Kitchen recalled approximately 16,722 lbs. of beef and chicken Wellington products on concerns of an undeclared allergen, FSIS said. A spice supplier notified the company that an ingredient used in the spice mix was contaminated with peanuts, FSIS said. Peanuts are a known allergen, but it was not declared on the product labels. Gourmet Kitchen and FSIS have received no reports of adverse reactions related to the affected items.
