The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued a public health alert on chicken breast meal kits due to concerns about the poultry’s misbranding and undeclared allergens. 

"FSIS is issuing this public health alert to ensure that consumers are aware that these products should not be consumed," the agency wrote in a press release Friday.

The chicken breast meal kits were shipped to retail locations in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont. They were produced between March 19, 2022 and March 22, 2022. 

The following products are subject to the public health alert:

  • 11.55 oz. plastic containers of "freshly made meal CHICKEN BREAST" with sell-by dates of 03/26/22 through 03/29/22, and lot codes of TFNE078, TFNE079, TFNE080, and TFNE081.
  • 11.55 oz. plastic containers of "Hannaford freshly made meal chicken breast" with sell-by dates of 03/26/22 through 03/29/22, and lot codes of TFNE078, TFNE079, TFNE080, and TFNE081.

The products also bear the establishment number "P-46638" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The agency recommends these products should be thrown away or returned to their place of purchase.

The agency noted the problem was discovered when the producing establishment notified FSIS that they observed different seasonings than usual on the product labeled as grilled chicken breast while preparing the chicken meal kits.

As of Friday, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of the products.

The FSIS also verified that the affected products are no longer for sale, but is "concerned that some products may be in consumers’ refrigerators."
