Whole Foods recalled a large amount of containers that were labeled as chicken salad as the product was really tuna, according to a report by the United States Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Willow Tree Poultry Farm of Attleboro, Massachusetts, is recalling approximately 440 pounds of tuna salad products due to misbranding and not declaring an allergen on the labels.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that the product contains tuna, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label and the packing was mislabeled as chicken salad product.

The buffalo style chicken products were produced last month.

The affected product is the 12.5 ounce individual plastic containers of “buffalo style chicken salad.” The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-8827” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

These items were shipped to Whole Foods Market locations in Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York. The problem was discovered by Whole Foods Market employees while unpacking the product.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
