TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (GRAY) – Nearly 3,000 pounds of "Chef Boyardee rice with chicken & vegetables" packages contain beef ravioli products and are under a high-risk recall, the U.S. Department of Agriculture stated.
The products may contain milk and wheat, which are known allergens and not declared on the product label.
The problem was discovered by parent company Conagra Brands, Inc. after receiving consumer complaints that bowls of microwave beef ravioli were mislabeled. The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service was notified Friday.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions from consumption of the products, but anyone concerned about injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider, the FSIS stated.
The 7.5-ounce microwaveable bowls have a package code 210090151050045L and best by date July 8, 2020 on the bottom of the bowl, with establishment number "EST. 794." People who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them, and the products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
