WASHINGTON – HEB Meat Plant in San Antonio, Texas, launched a recall of approximately 1,150 lbs. of diced chicken thighs because the product contains wheat, a known allergen that is not declared on the product label, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the US Dept. of Agriculture reported.
FSIS said there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. But the agency is urging consumers to discard or return the products to the place of purchase.
The products per made on Sept. 22 and include 1.75-lb. (approximate catch weight per package) plastic shrink wrapped packages of “MI TIENDA PARA TACOS DE POLLO CASERO SEASONED DICED SKINLESS CHICKEN THIGHS” with a freeze by/sell by date of Oct. 12, 2017.
The affected items bear establishment number “P-7231” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The chicken was shipped to retail locations in Texas.
FSIS said a consumer discovered the problem on Oct. 2. The consumer noticed an incorrect label and notified the company, which then notified FSIS.
