As they were unpacking chicken salad products, Whole Foods employees noticed something fishy. The chicken was actually tuna.

A Massachusetts poultry farm is recalling about 440 pounds of tuna salad products due to "misbranding and an undeclared allergen," the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced July 1.

"Buffalo style chicken salad" in 12.5-ounce plastic containers produced June 27, 2017, are subject to the recall, the press release said.

The products, with establishment number P-8827, were shipped to Whole Foods Market locations in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York. 

According to the press release, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the salad.

Customers are encouraged to return or throw away the products.
