WASHINGTON, December 31, 2014 – Campos Foods, LLC, a Caryville, Tenn. establishment, is recalling approximately 5,300 pounds of chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The recalled products contain peanuts, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label.
The following items, produced on December 2, 2014, are subject to recall:
• Bulk boxes containing various weights of 90 pieces of “ROCKIN’ ROASTED ROASTED CHICKEN DRUM & THIGH (With Back) Smoke Flavor Added”.
• 16-lb. bulk boxes containing approximately 32 pieces of “ROCKIN’ ROASTED ROASTED CHICKEN QUARTERS Smoke Flavor Added”.
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “P-2260T” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to distribution centers nationwide.
The problem was initially discovered when the firm was notified by a supplier that an ingredient was recalled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA’s recall release, “Adams Flavors, Foods & Ingredients Issues Allergy Alert On Undeclared Peanut Protein In Cumin Products,” can be viewed at: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm428141.htm.
FSIS and the company have received no 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 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 at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
