A chicken recall has been announced by Walmart.
The voluntary chicken recall involves 6,013 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat Crispy Chicken with Almonds entrée, according to the announcement.
The recall is due to misbranding and undeclared allergen. The joint announcement was by Walmart, the Mountain View Packaging, LLC, a Boise, Idaho establishment, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.
The product contains shellfish (shrimp), a known allergen that is not declared on the product label.
The product was produced Nov. 17. The recall includes:
• 18.5 oz packages of “INNOVASIAN Crispy Chicken with Almonds ENTREE” with lot code 22321-1, UPC code 695119120499, and a best by date 05/24/2023.
The product subject to recall bears the USDA mark of inspection but does not bear the establishment number on the packaging. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that they received a consumer complaint reporting shrimp in a product labeled as Crispy Chicken with Almonds entrée.
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’ or retailers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them and retailers are urged not to sell them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact the InnovAsian Cuisine hotline at 1-800-324-5140.
