WASHINGTON, Aug. 15, 2017 – Missa Bay, LLC, a Swedesboro, N.J. establishment, is recalling approximately 1,719 pounds of chicken caesar salad products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains wheat, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The chicken caesar salad product was produced on August 1, 2017. The following product is subject to recall: [View Label (PDF Only)]
  • 9.95 oz. plastic salad bowls containing “Cumberland FARMS CHICKEN CAESAR SALAD with ROMAINE LETTUCE, ROASTED CHICKEN, PARMESAN CHEESE, BACON, MULTIGRAIN CROUTONS & CREAMY CAESAR DRESSING and bar code: 042704 034301, with a use by date of August 16, 2017.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P18502B” on the front of the product label. These items were shipped to Cumberland Farms retail locations in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.
The problem was discovered when the establishment received notification from the sole retailer of the chicken products that the incorrect ingredient label was applied to the chicken caesar salad products.  The ingredient label has a statement that the products were made without gluten containing ingredients, however, the Chicken Caesar Salad contains croutons made with wheat, and thus the wheat allergen was not declared on the label.
Cumberland Farms, the sole retailer, released a recall statement on August 9, 2017, which informed consumers of the product misbranding. FSIS is issuing its own press release.
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.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
