31-12-2010 | | |

Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation is voluntarily recalling approximately 180,000 pounds of Pierce Hot & Spicy Breaded Chicken Wings and Sweet Georgia Brand Hot & Spicy Breaded Chicken Wings produced for foodservice distributors because the products may contain undeclared egg allergens. The company’s quality assurance team identified the issue during an allergen review.

The recalled products, which carry the item codes 1703 and 95122, were sold to foodservice distributors in 20-pound and 10-pound cases, respectively. They were produced in the company’s plant in Boaz, Ala. (P-413), and were sold to approximately 30 foodservice distributors across the country. Pilgrim’s is in the process of contacting all of the foodservice customers who received the recalled products.
