Atkins chicken, cheese, bean burritos recalled for eggs, sausage

Holland, MI-based Request Foods Inc. has recalled about 30,500 pounds of burrito products because of misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The products are mislabeled as a chicken with cheese and bean burrito but contain an egg and sausage burrito product. The product contains egg and soy, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label.
