Over 2,000 pounds of Chef Boyardee Chicken & Rice recalled for misbranding

Chef Boyardee Rice with Chicken & Vegetables recalled due to mislabeling

WASHINGTON – Conagra Brands, Inc. announced on Saturday that they are recalling more than 2,000 pounds of chicken and rice products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens.

According to the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the products may contain milk and wheat, which are known allergens, but are not declared on the product label. They also say the products are labeled as chicken and rice products but contain beef ravioli products.

This recall affects the 7.5 oz canned microwaveable bowls of Chef Boyardee Rice with Chicken & Vegetables, containing a package code of 210090151050045L, a “best by” date of Jul082020, and establishment number “EST. 794” on the bottom of the bowl.

These products were shipped to retail locations in Florida, Kentucky, and New York.

The problem was first discovered after receiving numerous consumer complaints that bowls of microwaveable beef ravioli were mislabeled as “chicken with rice & vegetables”.

Those that have purchased these products are urged to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
