Chicken Wing Products Recalled

27 December 2012

US - Wayne Farms recalling approximately 2,320 pounds of frozen honey barbeque chicken wing products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen, egg, that is not declared on the label.

The products produced by the Decatur, Alabama processor include 4-lb. bags of "GFS® Honey BBQ Flavored Chicken Wings" packed in 16-lb. cases.

The cases bear the establishment number "P-33885" inside the USDA mark of inspection and a case code of 572160. The bags bear a production date of "11/28/12" above "p#33885" inkjetted on the package.

The products were produced 28 November and were shipped to a foodservice distribution center in Kentucky for distribution at the retail level in Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee.

The problem was discovered when a customer attempted to scan the product into inventory and was unable to. The product being recalled was produced with eggs and packaged in bags for product formulated without eggs.
