Minnesota Firm Recalls Canned Chicken Products Due to Mislabeling and Undeclared Allergen

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received information regarding the recall of approximately 70,500 pounds of premium chunk chicken due to mislabeling and an undeclared allergen. The products may actually contain 'Beef with Gravy.' The canned beef product contains wheat, an allergen not declared on the canned chicken label.

The product subject to recall is:

  • 12.5-oz. cans of "Tyson Premium Chunk Chicken".

The incorrectly labeled products subject to recall bear the code date of "8965 248A 12139" and "Best by May 18, 2015" ink-jetted on the bottom of each can. Each label bears the number P-65 inside the USDA mark of inspection.

These products were produced on May 18, 2012, and were distributed to retail establishments nationwide.

The full recall can be found at www.fsis.usda.gov/News_&_Events/Recall_050_2012_Release/index.asp.
