N.Y. Gourmet Salads, Inc., a Brooklyn, N.Y., establishment, is recalling an undetermined amount of various chicken products because the products were produced without the benefit of federal inspection, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 5-pound tubs of "CHICKEN SALAD, MADE WITH ALL WHITE MEAT."
  • 5-pound tubs of "GRILLED CHICKEN PASTA & BROCCOLI."
  • 3-pound trays with six wraps of "CHICKEN w/ROASTED PEPPER & MOZZARELLA WRAP."
  • 5-pound trays of "GRILLED BONELESS CHICKEN BREAST CUTLET."
  • 5-pound trays of "TERIYAKI CHICKEN BREAST."

The chicken products were produced intermittently between November 5, 2009, and March 10, 2010, and were distributed to retail establishments in the New York City metropolitan area. Each chicken product bears the establishment number "P-34440" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

Consumers may have purchased these chicken products at delicatessen counters at supermarkets.

The problem was discovered by FSIS and is part of an ongoing investigation. FSIS has received no reports of illness due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a physician.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. If available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS Web site at http://www.fsis.usda.gov/FSIS_Recalls/

Consumer and media questions regarding the recall should be directed to the company Vice President Lenny Spada at (718) 765-0082.
