(Before It's News)

Omni Custom Meats Inc. in Bowling Green, KY, Tuesday recalled about 95 tons of marinated roasted chicken quarters because of misbranding, specifically an undeclared allergen, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The product contains soy, a known allergen, which was not declared on the product label, the FSIS recall notice states.

The 191,695 pounds of marinated roasted chicken quarters were produced from Jan. 12 through Nov. 15. The 5,477 cases of recalled products can be identified by the following label information:

  • 35-pound, heat sealed bags containing 52 pieces of “Roasted Chicken Quarters – Sea Salt, Cane Juice, Chicken Broth Powder, Canola Powder, Spices.”

The recalled products have the establishment number “P-2199” printed in the USDA mark of inspection. The chicken quarters were shipped to distributors in Georgia and Missouri.

FSIS personnel discovered the problem Nov. 21 during routine label verification exercises. No one has yet turned up ill or with adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
