WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A company from Arkansas says they are recalling their frozen chicken products due to mis-branding and undeclared allergens.
George's Inc. announced Monday they are recalling approximately 1.25 million pounds of frozen par-fried chicken tender products. The products were formulated with wheat, a known allergen, which was not properly declared on the labels.
The recall are for the following items:
• 10-lb. cases of "George's Uncooked Breaded Chicken Breast Tenderloins" with Case Code 4831 and packaging dates between Feb. 21, 2013 and Dec. 19, 2013.
• 10-lb. cases of "George's Uncooked Chicken Tenderloin Fritters" with Case Code 4861 and packaging dates between Feb. 21, 2013 and Jan. 4, 2014.
• 10-lb. cases of "George's Uncooked Chicken Tenderloin Fritters" with Case Code 4880 and packaging dates between Feb. 21, 2013 and Jul. 19, 2013.
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number "P-13584" under the USDA Mark of Inspection and were sold to wholesale locations for distribution to institutional users nationwide.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says the problem was discovered during a routine label review. It happened when the company discovered issues with their printer that caused some labels to print without selected ingredients. George's has since fixed the issue.
The company says they have not received any reports of adverse reactions at this time.
Anyone concerned about a reaction is asked to contact a healthcare provider. Consumers with questions are asked to contact Ali Perry at (479) 927-7256.
