Gainesville firm recalls chicken breast, tender products

By Ken Stanford Reporter
WASHINGTON - Prime Pak Foods of Gainesville is recalling approximately 23,250 pounds of fully cooked breaded chicken breast and tender products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The products were formulated with eggs, milk and wheat, known allergens which are not declared on the product label.

(This is the second recall of Prime Pak products in the past few weeks. See earlier story. Link below.)

The following products are subject to recall:

Two 5-lb. bags in a 10-lb. box of "Wegmans Fully Cooked Breaded Chicken Breast Strips" with the product code "77064" printed on the box.

Two 5-lb. bags in a 10-lb. box of "Wegmans Fully Cooked Breaded Chicken Breast Strips" with the product code "77065" printed on the box.

Two 5-lb. bags in a 10-lb. box of "Sugar Lake Farms Fully Cooked Breaded Chicken Tender" with the product code "77409" printed on the box.

Two 5-lb. bags in a 10-lb. box of "Wegmans Fully Cooked Breaded Chicken Breast

Fillets" with the product code "77425" printed on the box.

The recalled products were mislabeled by Prime Pak Foods and were not sold at Wegmans or other retail stores. The products were distributed to hotels, restaurants and institutions nationwide.

They were produced from June 5, 2013 to March 21, 2014. The products bear the establishment number "P-9165" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The problem was discovered by the company during the product recovery phase of recall 023-2014 when misbranded product not from the previous recall was observed.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact John Appling at (770) 536-8708, ext. 1105, or jappling@primepakfoods.com.
