Taylor Farms Pacific is voluntarily recalling about 52,191 pounds of chicken Caesar salad products because dressing packets included with them contain egg, an allergen.
Egg is not listed on the label, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture news release.
The problem was discovered when a consumer had an allergic reaction after eating one of the salads. The consumer had an allergy to eggs and suspected they were in the dressing, according to the USDA.
The products in consumer packaging, both with sell-by dates of Sept. 3, are:
- 7-ounce packages of Taylor Farms Caesar Pasta Layered Salad with Chicken displaying P-34013 inside the inspection mark; and
- 12-ounce plastic trays of Signature Café Grilled Chicken Caesar that may or may not show P-34013 inside the inspection mark.
The products in retailer packaging are:
- 6.25-pound cases of Signature Café Grilled Chick Caesar Salad Kit.
Recalled products from Tracy, Calif.-based Taylor Farms Pacific went to a distribution list that included Safeway nationwide; Vons and Pavilions stores in California; Randalls and Tom Thumb stores in Texas; Genuardi’s in New Jersey and Pennsylvania; and Dominick’s in Illinois.
The salads were produced Aug. 9-24.
The Signature Café salad kits bear one of the following in the inspection mark: P-34013 with a case code of 218804 or 218815; P-34733 with a case code of 2300103; P-34522 with a case code of 22019666637; or P-34703 with a case code of 59348. The kits were distributed nationwide.
The 12-oz. Signature Café salads were distributed in California. The Taylor Farms Caesar pasta layered salads with chicken were distributed in Oregon, California and Washington.
