Voluntary Recall Notice
Posted on Friday, November 10, 2017
Empire Kosher® is committed to producing the highest quality products and our top priority is the safety of our consumers. Unfortunately, due to an equipment malfunction certain of our boneless chicken breast products have the potential to contain a piece of extraneous material contamination [broken metal]. Out of an abundance of caution we are issuing a voluntary recall for five products with identified sell by dates manufactured in one of our facilities (USDA-FSIS Establishment P-1015). There have been no reports of illness or injury associated with this issue.
The affected lots of Empire Kosher® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast were distributed to select Costco, select Trader Joe’s, and select Wegmans stores only. No other retailers received these products.
The affected products and ‘Sell By Dates’ dates that are being recalled are:
|Customer||Hain Item #||Product Description||Size||Sell By date|
|Costco||EKP46375||Empire Kosher® Chicken Boneless Breast Cutlet Chill Pack||4 – 5.25 lbs||11/14/2017|
