Chicken mislabeled as gluten free is recalled

Boulder Natural Meats of Denver is recalling approximately 363 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts that were misbranded, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Thursday.

The product was formulated with wheat, which is declared on the product label, so all allergens are properly identified. However, the front label states the product is gluten free. Products with a gluten-free claim may not contain wheat.

The following product is subject to recall: 1- to 1.5-pound vacuum-sealed packages of “Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts brushed with Teriyaki Seasoning.”

The product was produced May 13 and 14, and has a freeze-by date of May 24 or May 25. The product bears the establishment number “P18852” inside the USDA mark of inspection. It was sold to retail establishments in Colorado.

The problem was discovered by a retailer, which notified the company.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the product. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a health-care provider.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Heather Crane at (303) 301-5293.

Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-674-6854 is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from noon to 6 p.m. MDT Monday through Friday.
