Conagra Brands is recalling approximately 2,871 pounds of chicken and rice products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced. The products may contain milk and wheat, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label.
The products are labeled as chicken and rice, but contain beef ravioli products. The 7.5-ounce canned microwavable bowls of Chef Boyardee rice with chicken & vegetables were produced and packaged on January 16. They were shipped to retail locations in Florida, Kentucky and New York.
The problem was discovered by the firm after receiving consumer complaints that bowls of microwave beef ravioli were mislabeled as chicken with rice & vegetables. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
