Frozen Poultry Products Recalled Due to Lack of Inspection

Illinois-based Humphrey’s Market, Inc. is recalling approximately 2,764 of frozen, ready-to-eat and raw poultry products because they were produced without inspection.

The products may also contain soy, wheat and milk not declared on the label.

The following ready-to-eat products are subject to recall:

- Cryovac packages of “Mesquite Chicken Breast” containing 4-oz. portions

- Cryovac packages of “Italian Chicken Breast” containing 3.5-oz. portions

- Cryovac packages of “Grilled Chicken Breast” containing 4-oz. portions

- Cryovac packages of “Italian Tomato Basil Chicken Breast” containing 4-oz. portions

- Cryovac packages of “BBQ Glazed Chicken Breast” containing 3.1-oz. portions

The following raw products are subject to recall:

- Cryovac packages of “Lemon Pepper Chicken Breast” containing 5-oz. portions

- Cryovac packages of “Bacon-wrapped Turkey Breast Filet” containing 5-oz. portions

The products were packaged before January 7, 2013 and shipped into commerce without the required labeling. The products were then sent to a distributor for direct home delivery in Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service discovered the problem during a routine food safety assessment at the plant.

“Agency enforcement personnel determined that the products were produced without the benefit of inspection, proper record-keeping, and adherence to food safety and sanitation plans approved by FSIS and without correct labeling,” the recall statement read.

FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. However, due to the time required to trace outbreaks, it is not possible to determine whether illnesses have been caused by this product.
