Tara BalsleyWASHINGTON, August 31, 2006 – Sandridge Food Corp., a Medina, Ohio, firm, is voluntarily recalling approximately 7,497 pounds of chicken salad due to an undeclared allergen (soy), the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.

The package labels do not specifically state that textured soy flour, a potential known allergen, is an ingredient.

The following product is subject to recall:

  • 12-ounce plastic containers of “GRANDMA’S ORIGINAL RECIPES, CHICKEN SALAD, MADE WITH WHITE CHICKEN MEAT.” Each label bears the establishment number “P-2447” inside the USDA mark of inspection. Each case bears the code “2632323.” Each label also includes one of the following use by dates: “08/27/06,” “09/03/06,” “09/08/06,” “09/15/06,” “09/22/06,” “09/25/06,” “09/29/06,” “10/06/06” or “10/08/06.”

The chicken salad was produced between July 13 and August 24, 2006, and was shipped to retail stores in Florida, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The problem was discovered by the company. FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a physician.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact company President Bill Frantz at (800) 627-2523.

Consumers with food safety questions can phone the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854). The hotline is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day.
