American Outdoor Products, a Boulder, Colo., establishment, is recalling approximately 633 pounds of dehydrated fettuccine Alfredo with chicken due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products were formulated with milk and wheat, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 7.5-oz. foil pouches of  “Backpackers Pantry Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken”

The products were produced July 2, 2013 and have the product code 07/02/2020 printed on the pouch and the establishment number P-4933 inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were sold wholesale, online and to retail establishments nationwide.

The problem was discovered by a retailer in Vermont, which notified the company via telephone on Wednesday. It was determined that the wrong back panel was put into the labeling machine by mistake for some of the products produced that day. The recalled product is properly identified on the front of the pouch, yet mistakenly has a label, including ingredient list and nutrition information, for the firm’s "Jamaican Jerk style rice with chicken" printed on the backside of the pouch, which could cause consumer confusion.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to ensure that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
