Illinois Firm Recalls Ready-To-Eat and Raw Poultry Products Produced Without Benefit of Inspection

Humphrey’s Market, Inc., a Springfield, Ill. establishment, is recalling approximately 2,764 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat (RTE) and raw poultry products because they were produced without the benefit of inspection. The products were also misbranded after being repackaged and may contain soy, wheat and milk, known allergens not declared on the label.

The following RTE products are subject to recall: :

  • Cryovac packages of “Mesquite Chicken Breast” containing 4-oz. portions
  • Cryovac packages of “Italian Chicken Breast” containing 3.5-oz. portions
  • Cryovac packages of “Grilled Chicken Breast” containing 4-oz. portions
  • Cryovac packages of “Italian Tomato Basil Chicken Breast” containing 4-oz. portions
  • Cryovac packages of “BBQ Glazed Chicken Breast” containing 3.1-oz. portions

The following raw products are subject to recall:

  • Cryovac packages of “Lemon Pepper Chicken Breast” containing 5-oz. portions
  • Cryovac packages of “Bacon-wrapped Turkey Breast Filet” containing 5-oz. portions

The products subject to recall were repackaged on various dates through January 7, 2013, then shipped into commerce, without the required ingredient statement and other labeling features on the immediate product container. The repackaged products were sent to a distributor for direct home delivery in Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.

The problem was discovered during a routine food safety assessment (FSA) at the plant by FSIS. Agency enforcement personnel determined that the products were produced without the benefit of inspection, proper record-keeping, and adherence to food safety and sanitation plans approved by FSIS and without correct labeling.

FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that recalled product is no longer available to consumers.

Consumers and members of the media who have questions regarding the recall can contact the company’s office adminitrator, Grant Bradley, at (217) 544-7445.
