Whoops: Recalled buffalo chicken salad is actually tuna salad, USDA says
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Over 400 pounds of buffalo style chicken salad sold at Whole Foods is being recalled because it's actually tuna salad, according to the USDA.
The Food Safety Inspection Service announced the recall on July 1, saying the product had been mislabeled.
The affected products were made on June 27, and are in 12.5 oz individual containers.
According to the USDA, each container has the establishment number “P-8827” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The mislabeled tuna salad was shipped to Whole Foods Markets in Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York.
According to the USDA, Whole Foods employees discovered the problem while unpacking the product.
Officials say there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from consumers eating the mislabeled tuna salad.
They say anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact their healthcare provider.
The USDA is urging consumers to throw the product away or return it to the place of purchase.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Alex Cekala, General Manager of manufacturer Willow Tree Poultry Farm, at (508) 951-8351.
