Shoppers may want to check twice in the frozen food aisle, after more than 500 pounds of a popular Perdue chicken product was been recalled due to misbranding and undeclared allergens.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced this week that 530 pounds of chicken products have been recalled because they contain eggs, a known allergen that is not declared clearly on the product’s label.
According to health officials, “the ready-to-cook chicken breast tenderloin fritters were inadvertently labeled with the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritter label. The chicken breast tenderloin fritters contain egg whites and the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritters do not. The ready-to-cook chicken tenderloin fritter items were produced on December 6, 2017.”
The label of the recalled product can be seen above.
There have been no confirmed reports of any adverse reactions due to consumption of the product. Shoppers that may have purchased the products are “urged not to consume them.”
