P.F. Chang’s Chicken Pad Thai and Chicken Fried Rice recalled over undeclared allergen
Conagra Brands, Inc. is voluntarily recalling approximately 2.9 million pounds of frozen P.F. Chang’s frozen entrees because they may contain milk, a known allergen that is not declared on the product label, according to a Department of Defense All Food and Drug Activity message sent May 5. The misbranding was discovered during a routine label verification check.
Those with milk allergies run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product.
The Defense Commissary Agency has publicized this recall to all its stores, said Richard Stith, supervisory consumer safety officer for DeCA headquarters at Fort Lee, Virginia. Whenever a commissary has recalled or withdrawn products in its inventory, they are immediately removed from store shelves.
The following products bearing establishment number “P115” are affected by this recall:
