WASHINGTON, Jan. 17, 2013 – 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

The following raw products are subject to recall:

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.
