Perdue Recalls Chicken Over Undeclared Allergens

The products were distributed with the wrong label.


Perdue Foods LLC is recalling more than 500 pounds of chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service made the announcement. The product contains eggs, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.

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 products subject to recall are 10-lb. boxes containing two five-pound plastic bags. The box is labeled “CHEF REDI HOMESTYLE CHICKEN TENDER FRITTER, RTC – LARGE” with the case code of 7374.

The items were shipped to food service locations in Florida, Maryland and Washington, D.C. The problem was discovered by Perdue while performing routine label verification activities.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, but consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them.
