WASHINGTON – The US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and Durant, Okla.-based BrucePac issued a public health alert on July 9 for approximately 16,800 lbs of ready-to-eat (RTE) diced misbranded chicken products.
The RTE diced chicken items were packed on June 22, 2020. The product may contain soy, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label, due to potential cross contamination.
The product was distributed to consumers in the San Antonio area as part of a food bank program on June 29, 2020. FSIS said a recall was not requested because the affected product is not available for consumers to purchase.
The firm discovered the problem during a product documentation review and realized there was potential cross contamination with marinade containing soy.
The following product is subject to the public health alert:
- 25-lb cardboard boxes containing 5-lb bags of “GRILLED SEASONED NATURAL DICED CHICKEN BREAST WITH RIB MEAT” with a CODE DATE: 061100 and PACK DATE 06/22/20.
The product bears establishment number “51205/P-51205” below the USDA mark of inspection.
