A recall on Kashi Pre-packaged food was issued yesterday. About 2,790 pounds of Kashi Southwest Style Chicken products are being recalled because the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service stated that the packages may contain another product, Kashi Chicken Pasta Pomodoro, that has egg in it. The egg in the product is not mentioned on the packaging, therefore posing a risk to those allergic to it. The U.S.D.A has stated the health risk as “high”
The products that are being recalled have a UPC code of 1862729292, and a lot code of DEC28 11 RF B1.
Packages also have the establishment number of P-17644 in the mark of inspection.
The packaging mix-up was discovered when Kashi began receiving complaints about the product seemingly being in the wrong packaging. As of current, there has not been any complaints to Kashi or the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service about adverse reactions to the wrongly packaged products. The U.S.D.A suggests that if anyone has concerns about allergic reactions, they should contact a health provider.
Consumer concerns about the recall in general may direct all questions to the Kashi Consumer Response Center which can be reached at (877) 864-3523 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern time. Consumers can also visit Kashi’s website for more information.
