WASHINGTON – The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued a public health alert for raw, ready-to-cook chicken entrée products that may contain egg, a known allergen, which is not declared on the finished product label.
The agency is issuing this public health alert to ensure that consumers with an allergy to eggs are aware that these products should not be consumed. A recall was not requested because the products are no longer available for purchase.
The problem was discovered when the establishment notified FSIS that they received notification from their customer that an incorrect label was on the back of the plastic wrapped metal container. The label on the back of the product contains information related to a chicken cordon bleu product, which does not contain egg. The bacon cheddar chicken product contains egg.
The bacon-cheddar chicken entrée products were produced on Sept. 9, 2022. The following products are subject to the public health alert [view labels]:
- 12 oz. plastic wrapped metal containers containing “aprons READY TO COOK MEAL FOR ONE BACON-CHEDDAR SMOTHERED CHICKEN” with a use by date of 9/21/2022.
The products bear establishment number “P-48176” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to Publix locations in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
