NuVue Foods of Hamtramck, MI is recalling approximately 268 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) chicken burrito products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The products contain egg, a known allergen, which was not declared on the product label.
The recalled RTE chicken burrito items were produced on October 31, 2018.
- 6-oz. individually wrapped packages of “18th Street Deli Chicken Burrito” bearing expiration dates of “EXP 11/12/18” and “EXP 11/14/2018.”
The recalled burritos bear establishment number “P-22061,” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations, specifically vending machines, in Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio.
The company mistake was discovered on November 9, 2018, after the firm received a consumer complaint. The establishment produced “18th Street Deli Farmers Burritos,” containing eggs, which were mistakenly labeled as “18th Street Deli Chicken Burrito”.
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 is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators. 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 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. When available, the retail distribution lists will be posted on the FSIS website.
