Louisiana-based Big Easy Foods Louisiana Cuisine, Inc. issued a recall of approximately 93,006 pounds of both raw and cooked stuffed chicken product due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, according to USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The poultry products contain wheat, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.
Products were produced on various dates from June 9, 2013, through June 9, 2015 and bear the establishment number “13251” inside the USDA mark of inspection and have the sell by date printed on the product label. Products were shipped to retail outlets in Louisiana, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, New Jersey, Arizona, Florida, and Tennessee.
The problem was discovered this month when FSIS personnel observed that the chicken stuffing was formulated with an ingredient that contained wheat gluten.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
