New York Firm Has Recalled Chicken Ravioli

Carmel, N.Y. (SafetyAlerts) - United States Department of Agriculture, Food Safety and Inspection Service, (FSIS) said that Marrone Pasta Corp. has recalled approximately 3,150 pounds of chicken ravioli that contain an undeclared allergen (eggs).


Eggs are known allergens. Persons who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of possible allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The products subject to recall are 20-ounce packages of "Pasta Del Mondo, CHICKEN RAVIOLI." Each package bears "P-4702" inside the USDA seal of inspection.

The ravioli was produced prior to June 19, 2002 and distributed to retail stores in New York.

"We want consumers who are allergic to eggs to be aware of the recall," said William J. Hudnall, acting FSIS administrator. "People with sensitivities to eggs may wish to check their freezers for the recalled product."

The problem was discovered by an FSIS inspector.


Media and consumers with questions about the recall may contact Frank Marrone, company president, at (845) 225-8889
