Published 5:40 pm Monday, August 1, 2022
The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service has announced a recall involving P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Beef & Broccoli.
Conagra Brands, Inc., a Russellville, Ark. establishment, is recalling approximately 119,581 pounds of frozen beef products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on July 30, 2002. The product contains egg, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The products are labeled as beef and broccoli, but contain orange chicken. These items were produced on May 26 and May 27, 2022, are in 22-oz. plastic bag packages and labeled “P.F. CHANG’S HOME MENU BEEF & BROCCOLI” with lot code “5006 2146 2012” and “BEST BY MAY 21 2023”.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P115” on the side panel above the nutrition facts and were shipped to retail locations nationwide. The recall impacts only the P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Beef & Broccoli product listed and does not include any product sold at P.F. Chang’s restaurants.
According to the announcement, the problem was discovered when the producing establishment notified FSIS that it received two consumer complaints that the beef and broccoli package contained a chicken-based product.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, according to the announcement, which also advised that anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
“FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers,” stated the announcement. “Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.”
