FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -WASHINGTON, April 4, 2014 – Tyson Foods Inc., a Sedalia, Mo. establishment, is recalling approximately 75,320 pounds of frozen, fully cooked chicken nugget products that may be contaminated with extraneous materials the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The following products are subject to USDA recall:

  • 5-lb. bags of “Tyson Fully Cooked White Meat Chicken Nuggets – 16142-928” with a “Best if Used By” date of “Jan 26 2015” or Feb 16 2015.” The manufacturer codes “0264SDL0315 through 19” and “0474SDL0311 through 14” can also be found on the bags. These products were produced Jan. 26, 2014 or Feb. 16, 2014 and shipped nationwide to one retail warehouse club chain.

Class I Recall                                                                                                                              020-2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - American Outdoor Products, a Boulder, Colo., establishment, is recalling approximately 633 pounds of dehydrated Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products were formulated with milk and wheat, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 7.5-oz. foil pouches of “Backpackers Pantry Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken”

The products were produced July 2, 2013 and have the product code “07/02/2020” printed on the pouch. The products bear the establishment number “P-4933” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were sold wholesale, online and to retail establishments nationwide.

The problem was discovered by a retailer in Vermont, which notified the company via telephone yesterday, April 1. After investigation by the firm it was determined that the wrong back panel was put into the labeling machine by mistake for some of the products produced that day. The recalled product is properly identified on the front of the pouch, yet mistakenly has a label, including ingredient list and nutrition information, for the firm’s “Jamaican Jerk style rice with chicken” printed on the backside of the pouch, which could cause consumer confusion.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to ensure 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: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Elaine Sims at (303) 800-1404 or via e-mail at: elaine@backpackerspantry.com. Media with questions about the recall should contact Amie Souza at (303) 800-1402 or via e-mail at: amie@backpackerspantry.com.

Consumers with food safety questions can "Ask Karen," the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov or via smartphone at m.askkaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day. The online Electronic Consumer Complaint Monitoring System can be accessed 24 hours a day at: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/reportproblem.
