Misbranding leads to recall of over 200,000 pounds of salad products

Ready Pac Foods Inc. of  Swedesboro, NJ, and Jackson, GA, is recalling more than 222,000 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) salad products with meat and poultry because the products contain FDA regulated salad dressing that has been recalled by the producer, Litehouse Inc., due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen.

The problem was discovered when the firm was notified by their salad dressing supplier that a shipment of ranch salad dressing was inadvertently misbranded and may contain Caesar dressing with anchovies.

Anchovies are a known allergen, which is not declared on the salad product label. 

Recalled products:

  • The assembled ready-to-eat salads containing meat and poultry products were produced from Aug. 27, 2021, through Sept. 19, 2021.  
  • The products subject to recall may bear establishment number “M-18502B”, “P-18502B”, “M-32081”, or “P-32081” printed on the packaging next to the use by date. These items were shipped to retail and DOD locations nationwide.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service is concerned that some products may be in consumers’ refrigerators. 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.

Consumers with food safety questions can call the toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) or live chat via Ask USDA from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday.
