Gardenburger Recalls Mislabeled Chik’n Grill™ Product

Portland, OR (SafetyAlerts) - Gardenburger is voluntarily recalling its Gardenburger┬« Chik’n Grill™ fillets after learning that the product is mislabeled. The company was very recently informed by a supplier that sulfites are present in one of the product’s ingredients. Because Chik’n Grill packages do not list sulfites among the ingredients, products now on shelf are being recalled for re-labeling.

Sulfite-sensitive individuals who consume sulfites may have allergic reactions, some potentially life threatening. The product is safe for other consumers.

None of Gardenburger’s other products are affected by this recall.

Available in retail freezer cases nationwide, Chik’n Grill comes in an orange, red and black, 10-oz. package (UPC #84059-00064) containing four 2.5oz servings. The recall covers all production codes of the Chik’n Grill product. Consumers are urged to return the product to the store where it was purchased for a refund.

While sulfites naturally occur in foods and are widely used in processed food products such as dried fruit, Gardenburger considers them outside its commitment to all-natural ingredients. The company aims to substitute the supplier’s ingredient with one not containing sulfites. In the interim, Gardenburger will quickly replace the recalled product with one that is properly labeled.

This voluntary recall is being conducted in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration.

Consumers with questions can find answers at or by calling Gardenburger at 1-800-459-7079.
