Chicken Products Recalled for Misbranding

Berk Lombardo of a Brooklyn, N.Y. is recalling approximately 1,080 pounds of uncooked stuffed chicken breasts because of misbranding and undeclared ingredients, including known allergens.

The chicken products may contain eggs, milk, monosodium glutamate (MSG) or soy, which are not noted on the label. MSG is not classified as an allergen, but can cause a brief reaction in people with a sensitivity to MSG.

The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) discovered the problem during a label review at the company. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

The recalled products, which were sold directly to individual households throughout Long Island, include:

— Boxes containing four, 6-oz. frozen, vacuum-sealed packages of “Berk Lombardo CHICKEN BREAST STUFFED BROCCOLI & CHEESE” that bears the establishment number “P-19034” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
