Springdale-based George's Inc. recalled approximately 29,200 pounds of seasoned raw chicken breast strips because of a labeling error involving a known allergen, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

MSG and soy protein were not listed on the product label, but no illnesses have been reported in connection with this mistake, according the USDA release.

The complaint was raised by a consumer who noticed the product was seasoned, while the label merely said “boneless, skinless breast pieces.” The company then discovered the labeling mishap, the release notes.

Product was sold in 40-pound bulk cartons labeled “George’s Boneless Skinless Breast Pieces W/Rib Meat”. The case code is 4790. The products processed and packaged from Dec. 21 through 23 and sold to distributors in Tennessee and Iowa for further distribution. The recalled products bear the establishment number “P-13584”.
