This Taco Kit Is Being Recalled From Grocery Stores In 12 Different States

It contains everything you need to make Chicken Street tacos, but may contain an undeclared harmful ingredient.
FACT CHECKED BY Faye Brennan

The Chicken Street Taco Kit sold at two grocery stores in 12 states is the subject of a recall from Reser's Fine Foods because it may contain a potentially harmful ingredient not mentioned on the label, according to notices posted by the FDA.

The meal kits contain everything needed to make the tacos, including chicken, lettuce, tortillas, cheese, lime wedges, and Chipotle Crema Sauce that contains egg—but it was not mentioned on the label. Anyone with an allergy or sensitivity to egg could have a serious or life-threatening reaction if they unknowingly consume the sauce.

The $12.99 meal kit was supplied to and sold in the deli at Hy-Vee stores in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, as well as at Giant Eagle stores in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, and Indiana.

The Hy-Vee kits have a "Best if Used By" date prior to May 27, 2021 and a UPC code of 02-82503-09993. The Giant Eagle kits have a "sell by" date through 05/28/21 and a PLU code of 56598.

Both grocery stores say there have been no reports of illnesses related to the recall, and that Reser's Fine Foods alerted them when the issue was discovered. They also say that anyone with the kit in their fridge should dispose of it immediately or return it to the store for a full refund.

FYI: Hy-Vee and Giant Eagle aren't the only major retailers to recently issue a recall. Here's everything you need to know:
