Chicken Tenders Shipped To New York Being Recalled
A Pennsylvania company producing ready-to-eat Chick Tenders is recalling several pounds of product. This time instead of a bacteria issue, the USDA says they discovered issues with the packages' labeling.
The packages didn't include milk (whey) in its list of ingredients, which could be a huge problem for those with an allergy. The product is breaded chicken tenders with BBQ sauce and hot sauce from Canteen/Convenco of Middletown, Pennsylvania. Here are the products and labels to avoid:
- 6 oz. clear plastic pouches containing “FRESH TO YOU, Breaded Chicken Tenders w/ BBQ Sauce,” case code 1077 and “Fresh Thru” dates ranging from 09-14-18 to 10-05-18.
6 oz. clear plastic pouches containing “FRESH TO YOU, Breaded Chicken Tenders w/ Hot Sauce,” case code 6141 and “Fresh Thru” dates ranging from 09-16-18 to 10-07-18.
The packages also have the code “P-40088” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The tenders were shipped to retail stores, specifically vending machines, in Maryland, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
The USDA's website has more information on the recall. To date, no illnesses have been reported; but the problem was only discovered October 4.
