(WTXL) - Chicken products shipped to Florida, Maryland and Washington, D.C., are being recalled by Perdue Foods due to misbranding and undeclared allergens.

The recall concerns about 530 pounds of chicken products shipped to food service locations, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.

The product contains eggs, a known allergen not declared on the product label.

The ready-to-cook chicken breast tenderloin fritters were inadvertently labeled with the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritter label. The chicken breast tenderloin fritters contain egg whites and the Homestyle Chicken Tender Fritters do not. The ready-to-cook chicken tenderloin fritter items were produced on December 6, 2017.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 10-lb. boxes containing two 5 lb. plastic bags with the box labeled “CHEF REDI HOMESTYLE CHICKEN TENDER FRITTER, RTC – LARGE” with the case code of 7374.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number "P-11507" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The problem was discovered by the firm while performing routine label verification activities.

There have been no confirmed reports of 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 to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Perdue Consumer Relations, at 1-877-727-3447.
