St. Clair Foods Inc. of Memphis, TN, is recalling approximately 26,800 pounds of chicken and dumplings due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Oct. 21.

The chicken and dumplings were produced on various dates from Sept. 13 through Oct. 6. The products contain milk, a known allergen, which was not declared on the product label.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 5-lb. plastic sealed packages containing “ST. CLAIR FOODS CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS” bearing package codes 16257, 16264, and 16280
  • 2-lb. plastic sealed packages containing “ST. CLAIR FOODS CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS” bearing package codes 16257, 16264, and 16280
  • 5-lb. plastic sealed packages containing “RON’S HOMESTYLE FOODS CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS” bearing package codes 16280, 16272, 16264, and 16257

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST-6568” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to foodservice warehouses and distributed for institutional use in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas.

The problem was discovered Oct. 20 during a review of product specifications. The company stated that it was not notified by the ingredient supplier that there was a change in the dumpling ingredients to include the addition of milk and immediately notified FSIS that the undeclared milk allergen ingredient was incorporated into their products.

There have been no confirmed reports of injury, illness, or adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them but to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Monica Woodruff at 901-322-7301.
