Plastic Bits in Chicken Pot Pie Empanadas

A Los Angeles company is recalling approximately 11,390 pounds of chicken pot pie empanadas that may contain foreign materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Monday. 

Windsor Quality Food Co. was informed by a foodservice distributor customer that there were pieces of plastic in the Molly’s Kitchen Mini Chicken Pot Pie Empanadas. The company said the problem may have been the result of  equipment breaking during production.

FSIS and the company said there have been no reports of illness or injury.

The recall involves 10 lb. cases each containing 4 boxes of 27-count Molly’s Kitchen Mini Chicken Pot Pie Empanadas with the product code of 953397 and a best-before date of Aug. 30, 2012.

The case and box labels bear the establishment number “P-9281” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The recalled empanadas were produced on Aug. 30, 201, and shipped to one foodservice distributor for further distribution nationwide. 

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Lynn Hall, the company’s senior vice president, at 512-249-3416.
