Nestle USA, Inc. Has Recalled "MINOR’S Chicken Base NO ADDED MSG"

Cleveland, Ohio (SafetyAlerts) - United States Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service, (FSIS) said that Nestle USA, Inc., doing business as Food Ingredient Specialties, has recalled approximately 144,000 pounds of chicken base refrigerated products because they contain undeclared whey protein (milk).

Whey protein is a known allergen. Persons who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to whey protein run the risk of possible allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The products subject to recall are Ѕ-, one- and five-pound tubs of "MINOR’S Chicken Base NO ADDED MSG," a paste type product added to soups, sauces and gravies. Each tub lid bears a date code beginning with one of the following numbers: 1323, 1337, 1351, 2014 or 2028. Each tub also bears establishment code "P-316" inside the USDA seal of inspection.

The products were produced between Nov. 14, 2001 and Feb. 8, 2002 and distributed in various weight cases to food service and retail club stores nationwide.

"We urge consumers to check their refrigerators for this product," said Margaret Glavin, acting FSIS administrator. "If they find the product listed above, consumers should return it to the point of purchase."

Food Ingredient Specialties received a consumer call about the product’s contents, conducted a quality check of the product, identified the problem, and notified USDA.
