Check your fridge for it ASAP.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is issuing a public health alert on ready-to-eat chicken breast meal kits in 9 different states.

The meal kits may contain allergens of wheat and soy, which are not declared on the product labels.

The meal kits were shipped out to nine different states, including Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

They were sold in 11.55-ounce containers with the sell-by dates of March 26-March 29, 2022. The lot codes are TFNE078, TFNE079, TFNE080, and TFNE081.

The problem was discovered when the production facility notified FSIS that they observed different seasonings than usual on the product labeled as grilled chicken breast while preparing the chicken meal kits.

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

FSIS has verified the affected products are no longer available for sale but is concerned that some products may be in consumers' refrigerators. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to eat them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Consumers with food safety questions can call the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 888-674-6854 or live chat via Ask USDA from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday.

The grocery space has been filled with recalls lately, affecting stores across the country from Kroger and Walmart to Target and ALDI.
