WASHINGTON – A brand of popular dehydrated fettuccini alfredo with chicken has been recalled due to undeclared allergens.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall of 633 pounds of 7.5-oz. foil pouches of Backpacker's Pantry Fettuccini Alfredo with Chicken, made by American Outdoor Products out of Boulder, Colo. The products were created with milk and wheat, which are known allergens. Milk and wheat were not declared on the product label.
Affected products were produced July 2, 2013 with a product code "07/02/2020" printed on the pouch, and an establishment number "P-4933" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The food was sold online and at stores nationwide.
There are no reports of sickness due to the allergen, but anyone with concerns about a reaction should consult a doctor.
A retailer in Vermont noticed the problem Tuesday and notified American Outdoor Products by phone. The company determined the product is property identified on the front of the pouch, but ingredients and nutrition information for Jamaican Jerk style rice with chicken is printed on the back.
