The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has posted a public health alert for Brett Anthony Foods’ Wow Bao brand Bao Thai-style Curry Chicken due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. The frozen product reportedly contains teriyaki chicken bao made with soy and sesame ingredients, known allergens, which are not declared on the label.

The fully cooked retail item was packed on March 20, 2024 in 10-ounce boxes with a “best if used by” date “4/12/25” printed on the side of the box. Bearing establishment number “P-40001” inside the USDA mark of inspection, the product was shipped to Walmart retail locations across the United States.

The health alert was issued after the Elk Grove, Illinois-headquartered company’s production plant notified FSIS that it received a consumer complaint that a box contained pouches of the bao teriyaki chicken.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the Wow Bao items.

FSIS, concerned that some of the products in question may be in consumers’ home freezers, urges those who have purchased the items not to eat them. They should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase for a refund.

Consumers with questions about the public health alert may contact Brandon Tammaro, Wow Bao’s vice president of Strategic Growth, by phoning +1 734-904-8627.
