Label prompts recall of Kashi products

WASHINGTON - California-based Kashi, is recalling about 2,790 pounds of Kashi Southwest Style Chicken labeled products.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service , the packages may actually contain Kashi Chicken Pasta Pomodoro, which contains egg, a known allergen that may not be declared on the label.

The problem was discovered by a customer who complained to Kashi when the package did not appear to be labeled correctly.

The recall includes 10 ounce "Kashi Southwest Style Chicken" entrees marked with UPC Code 1862729292 and bear a lot code of DEC28 11 RF B1.

Retailers should look for 8-count cases containing 10 oz. packages of "Kashi Chicken Pasta Pomodoro" which bear lot codes "DEC 28 2011 RF B1 06:00" through "DEC 28 2011 RF B1 08:00".

The individual packages are labeled "Keep Frozen" and bear the establishment number "P-17644" inside the mark of inspection.

Request Foods, Inc., a Holland, Mich., establishment, produced the chicken entrees for Kashi on December 28, 2010 and the products were shipped to retailers nationwide.
