Frozen food meals marketed as healthy may cause an unhealthy reaction in some consumers. Kashi, a food company that specializes in "natural foods," is recalling some of its frozen meals because of labeling errors.
The food company said a packaging error could pose an allergen risk for those allergic to eggs. Kashi said it is recalling nearly 2,790 pounds of Kashi Southwest Style Chicken products because the packages may instead contain Kashi Chicken Pasta Pomodoro, news reports. The packaging error may cause a safety risk because the Pomodoro contains the undeclared allergen, egg, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.
Meals affected by the recall include:
- 10 oz. "Kashi Southwest Style Chicken" entrees marked with UPC Code 1862729292 and bear a lot code of DEC28 11 RF B1.
- 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".
