In mid June, The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service announced a nationwide recall of about 608,188 pounds of Kroger-brand chicken wings due to a labeling error. Kroger’s announced the recall of 32-ounce package of fully-cooked Buffalo-style chicken wings after it was found that the frozen poultry products might contain undeclared milk, soy and wheat, producing a health risk for people allergic to such ingredients.

Subject to recall are:

Kroger fully cooked buffalo style chicken wing sections coated with sauce that bear a "Best By" date of "JUL 25, 2009" through "JUN 8, 2010." The bags were shipped to Kroger Co. retail stores nationwide.

Each printed plastic bag bears an embossed establishment number "P7091A," "P13477" or "P13485A" near the zip seal on the packages as well as the USDA mark of inspection. Each bag also bears the "Best By" date of "JUL 25, 2009" through "JUN 8, 2010", a UPC code "0 11110 97158 6," and Julian dates of "8207" to "9159." The frozen poultry products were produced on July 25, 2008, through June 8, 2009, and were shipped to Kroger® retail establishments nationwide.

Consumers with questions can contact Kroger at 800-632-6900 or contact them through their website. “We encourage anyone who is concerned about an allergic reaction to contact their physician,” Kroger spokeswoman Meghan Glynn said. “And of course we’ll also provide a refund.”

If you suffer from food poisoning, you need to get immediate medical care. If it continues or there are long term affects, you should contact an attorney concerning the problem. Early investigation can include the collection of samples, checking for health alerts, and the proper notifying of those who caused the problem.

    Too bad to hear about the mix up by Kroger, especially since the prices of chicken wings have already nearly doubled in the last 2 years due to higher demand. Good for the Kroger company though for taking this seriously as the certain peanut company earlier this year did not with their contamination isues. I'm a big fan of buffalo style chicken wings and hopefully this will be the last problem with them for many years to come.

    I didn't know about the increased price. Thanks for the information and taking the time to read the post.
