Pampanga Food Company, Inc. a Anaheim, Ca. establishment, is recalling approximately 14,430 pounds of sauteed chicken products because they contain an undeclared allergen, whey, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

Whey is a known allergen, which is not declared on the label.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 30 lb. cases of “PAMPANGA Sauteed Chicken,” with each case containing 3 lb. bags.

Each package bears the establishment number “P-9029-A” inside the USDA mark of inspection as well as a packaging date between May 6, 2010 and Dec. 6, 2010. Each case has a production date appearing as a lot number ranging from “0506” to “1203.” The products were sent to distribution centers for further sale to restaurants in the states of Calif. and Hawaii.

The problem was discovered by FSIS during a routine inspection. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a physician.

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

Consumer and media with questions about the recall should contact Reynaldo Reyes, the company's President, at (714) 553-1336.
