Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary W. Black is alerting consumers to the recall of a mislabeled product.
Kashi, of La Jolla, Calif., is recalling approximately 2,800 pounds of Kashi Southwest Style Chicken products because the packages may instead contain Kashi Chicken Pasta Pomodoro, which contains eggs. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The products being recalled include: 10-ounce “Kashi Southwest Style Chicken” entrees marked with UPC Code 1862729292 and bear a lot code of DEC28 11 RF B1.
Retailers should look for products labeled: 8-count cases containing 10-ounce packages of “Kashi Chicken Pasta Pomodoro” which bear lot codes “DEC 28 2011 RF B1 06:00” through “DEC 28 2011 RF B1 08:00”.
The individual packages are labeled “Keep Frozen” and bear the establishment number “P-17644” inside the mark of inspection. Request Foods, Inc., a Holland, Mich., establishment, produced the chicken entrees for Kashi on Dec. 28, 2010 and the products were shipped to retailers nationwide. The problem was discovered through customer complaints to Kashi when the packaged product did not appear to be correctly labeled.
The product may have been incorrectly packaged at the end of a production run. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a health care provider.
Consumers with questions about the recall may contact the Kashi Consumer Response Center at (877) 864-3523 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern time, or visit www.kashi.com. Members of the media with questions should contact the Kashi Media Hotline at (269) 961-3799 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Georgia Department of Agriculture sanitarians will be checking grocery stores and food warehouses as part of their daily activities to make sure these products are removed from sale.
