RECALL NOTICE: Big Easy Foods recalls chicken products

Big Easy Foods Louisiana Cuisine, Inc., a Lake Charles, La. establishment, is recalling approximately 93,006 pounds of both raw and cooked stuffed chicken product due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Wednesday. The product contains wheat, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 3 pound chipboard cartons of BIG EASY FOODS of LA "Boneless Stuffed Chicken with Pork Sausage and Potato Stuffing" with sell by dates of June 9, 2015 through June 8, 2017.

The products were produced on various dates from June 9, 2013, through June 9, 2015. The products bear the establishment number "13251" inside the USDA mark of inspection and have the sell by date printed on the product label. 

The products were shipped to retail outlets in Louisiana, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, New Jersey, Arizona, Florida, and Tennessee. The problem was discovered on June 8, 2015 when FSIS personnel observed that the chicken stuffing was formulated with an ingredient that contained wheat gluten.
