WASHINGTON — A Georgia firm issued a recall for fully cooked chicken breast products Saturday due to misbranding and undeclared allergens.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service posted a recall online Saturday, stating that Prime Pak Foods, of Gainesville, Ga., recalled approximately 24,000 pounds of product.
The recalled products included two five-pound bags in a ten-pound box of Sugar Lake Farms Fully Cooked Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders with the product code 77422 and two five-pound bags in a ten-pound box of Sugar Lake Farms Fully Cooked Breaded Chicken Breast Chunks with the product code 77448.
