Recall Issued For Mislabeled Harris Teeter Chicken Strips

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- B. Roberts Foods is recalling 202 pounds of chicken products sold at Harris Teeter stores, the Charlotte-based distributor announced.

The product in question is the 10-oz. refrigerated packages of "Harris Teeter, Fresh Foods Market, Deli-Bakery, All Natural Grilled Chicken Strips."

The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service says the problem is with the product's labeling. Both the top and bottom labels should read "Grilled Chicken Breast with Sundried Tomato Pasta."

Here's another issue. The chicken strips contain milk, a known allergen. However, the packaging does not disclose that information, as required by the USDA.

The product was sent to Harris Teeter stores in North Carolina, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Washington, DC. Harris Teeter reached out to B. Roberts Foods after an employee found the mislabeled chicken strips. B. Roberts confirmed the misstep and issued the recall.

The product was produced on July 10, 2014. The establishment number is 19198, the packaging code is 50223, and the "Sell By" date is 07/27/14.

Harris Teeter is working with B. Roberts Foods to fix the problem.

There have been no reports of allergic reactions to the chicken strips, but the USDA recommends calling your doctor if you have any issues.
