More than 8,700 pounds of chicken has been recalled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This is because of misbranding and undeclared allergens. According to an April 2 report by KWTV Channel 9 News in Oklahoma City, AdvancePierre Foods did not list the ingredients properly on the label of the recalled chicken.
The chicken was distributed in 15 states, from Utah to New York. Those states include Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and Virginia. The recalled chicken, “Our Down Home Style Chicken Breast Fritters for Chicken Frying,” have the UPC Code 36541 inside the USDA mark of inspection. The recalled chicken affects the 10-pound bulk cases.
The “Our Down Home Style Chicken Breast Fritters for Chicken Frying” was made with both milk and soy. That information was not included in the labeling for the recalled chicken.
AdvancePierre Foods was created when Advance Food Company merged with Pierre Foods in 2010. Advance Food Company was founded in Enid in 1973. The company now has its headquarters in Ohio.
At the time of publication, there were no reports of any illnesses associated with the recalled chicken.
