Chicken cous cous recalled for undeclared allergens

Food Evolution LLC in Schiller Park, IL, has recalled 150 pounds of Mediterranean-style chicken cous cous salad products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The product contains tree nuts, specifically pecans, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.

The ready-to-eat Mediterranean-style chicken cous cous salad items were packaged on March 31 and have a use-by date of April 7. The following product is subject to recall:

  • chickencouscous_406x25012.01-ounce clear plastic containers containing “Mediterranean Style Cous Cous Salad with Sweet Basil Dressing, Distributed by Roundy’s Supermarkets Inc.”

The recalled products bear establishment number “P-34309” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to Roundy’s Supermarket locations in Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The mistakes were discovered by Roundy’s Supermarkets. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website.
