Undeclared allergen leads to Taylor Farms salad recall
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service posted a recall notice from the company, a division of Taylor Farms, Salinas, Calif., on May 14. The notice is under the jurisdiction of the USDA and not the FDA because the USDA regulates chicken products.
The salads were shipped to HEB stores in Texas; a total of 1,079 pounds of the salads are involved in the recall, according to the notice.
The Caesar salads are in 9.75-ounce clear plastic packages, labeled “H.E.B. Shake, Rattle & Bowl Caesar Salad with Chicken.” They have “best by” dates of May 18 and have establishment numbers of “EST. P-34733” inside the USDA’s inspection mark, according to the notice.
No illness has been reported in connection with the recall.
The undeclared allergen issue was discovered at the store level, when the salads were being unpackaged before placing on shelves. The FSIS, however, “is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators,” according to the notice.
The company recalled a smaller number of Caesar salads for the same reason in October 2017.
