Perdue Foods LLC Recalls Chicken Products due to Misbranding and Undeclared Allergens
WASHINGTON, January 23, 2018 – Perdue Foods LLC, a Monterey, Tenn. establishment, is recalling approximately 530 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 product contains eggs, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.
The ready-to-cook chicken breast tenderloin fritters were inadvertently labeled with the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritter label. The chicken breast tenderloin fritters contain egg whites and the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritters do not. The ready-to-cook chicken tenderloin fritter items were produced on December 6, 2017. The following products are subject to recall: [View Label]

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-11507” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to food service locations in Florida, Maryland and Washington D.C.
The problem was discovered by the firm while performing routine label verification activities.
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.
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 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.
