WASHINGTON (CBS5) -

Foster Farms is recalling about 6,165 pounds of ready-to-eat grilled chicken breast strips that contain wheat and soy, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label.

Arizona is one of the states that received shipments of the product that was produced on April 23. Deliveries were made to other retail outlets in California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington.

In a news release, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said the following product is subject to recall: 

  • 4.5 lb. cases containing 12, 6-oz. trays of "FOSTER FARMS GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST STRIPS BONELESS & SKINLESS WITH RIB MEAT 97% FAT FREE," with an identifying case code of "000606."

The recalled product bears the establishment number "P-20923" inside the USDA mark of inspection and a use-by date of "JUN 22 2013" printed on each tray.

A consumer complaint triggered the recall. The problem occurred because the company inadvertently used labels for another chicken product it produces that does not contain wheat or soy, the USDA said. 

There have been no reports of adverse reactions linked to the consumption of the products.  

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Teresa Lenz, the company's consumer affairs manager, at 209-394-6914.
