CHICAGO, IL – The Chicago-based company Harvest Food Group, headquartered on the city’s Southwest Side, is recalling more than 47,000 pounds of chicken fried rice products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Friday. The company’s Not Ready-To-Eat products contain an “undeclared allergen” and have been misbranded, FSIS said.
The following product description was issued:
- 9-oz. cardboard packages of “yumnum global cuisine YAKITORI SEASONED CHICKEN FRIED RICE” bearing lot codes “C041A8K12 BEST BY 11/12/2019,” “C091A8L04 BEST BY 12/04/2019,” and “C091A8L05 BEST BY 12/05/2019.”
The products were produced on Nov. 12, Dec. 4 and Dec. 5, and shipped to stores in Illinois and Michigan, FSIS said. The problem was discovered by the firm during a label inventory check.
“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products,” FSIS stated. “Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.”
FSIS said it’s concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ freezers and/or refrigerators.
“These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase,” the government warned.
Harvest Food Group produced the products at its facility in the Archer Heights neighborhood.
