Safeway Fresh Food, LLC, a Vineland, N.J. establishment, recalled approximately 717 pounds of ready-to-eat Chicken Caesar Salad products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
Officials say the product contains anchovies, egg and wheat, and known allergens that are not declared on the product label.
The RTE Chicken Caesar Salad products were produced on April 19, 2022.
The following product is subject to recall:
- 13.6-oz. plastic bowl containing “Dole FRESH Takes CLASSIC CHICKEN CAESAR SALAD” with a use-by date of 05/05/2022 and lot code S109000 1, located at the top of the front label.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 40283” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
According to officials, the items were shipped to distributors in Maryland and Virginia and then further distributed to Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia retailers.
The problem was discovered when the producing establishment notified FSIS that it received a customer complaint that the product exhibited the incorrect ingredient statement label on the bottom of the bowl.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some products 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.
