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.
