Some Purdue chicken breasts are recalled

The U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service announced the recall of about 24,710 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts due to a labeling error.

Perdue Farms Inc. of Accomac, Va., initiated the recall because the product might contain an Italian seasoning that includes milk, a known allergen, which isn't declared on the label.

Being recalled are 28.8-ounce packages of "Perdue Perfect Portions" -- six individually wrapped boneless skinless chicken breasts. Each package bears the establishment number "EST. P-7903" inside the U.S. Department of Agriculture mark of inspection as well as the UPC code 72745-06819. Each package also bears a "Sell-by" or "Freeze-By" date of "FEB 02," "FEB 03," "FEB 04," "FEB 05" or "FEB 06."

The chicken products were distributed to retail establishments in Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Consumers with questions can contact the company at 800-473-7383.
