Salt Lake City’s Deleite Foods Enterprises Inc. Monday recalled about 11,000 pounds of marinated raw poultry products because of misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The products contain wheat and soy, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label.
The marinated diced chicken thigh meat was produced and packaged on Oct. 12, 15, and 16, 2018. The following products are subject to recall:
- 30-lb. cases each containing 3 10-lb. bags of frozen “MARINATED CHICKEN THIGH MEAT DICED – SUPC 7009466” and bearing lot codes 101218, 101518, or 101618.
The recalled products have establishment number “P-46130” printed inside the USDA mark of inspection. The recalled poultry was shipped to restaurants in Utah.
The mistake was discovered during routine label verification activities by an FSIS inspector, who found that the product did not include an ingredient statement nor declare soy and wheat.
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.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms are notifying their customers of the recall and that actions are being taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
