Valley International Cold Storage, a Harlingen, Texas-based refrigerated warehouse and repackaging facility, is recalling approximately 22,061 pounds of Healthy Choice Power Bowls due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, announced the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on September 17.

The Conagra Brands frozen ready meals, produced on July 22, are labeled as Korean-Style Beef, but contain chicken sausage and pepper as well as milk, a known allergen. Subject to the recall are cartons shipped to retail stores across the United States bearing a 5246220320 lot code, a 34622 establishment number, and a “best if used by” date of 04-18-2023.

The problem was discovered when the producer notified FSIS that it had received consumer complaints that misbranded packs contained chicken-based ingredients. While no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products have been reported, anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Shoppers who have purchased the Power Bowls in question and stored them in home freezers should not consume the contents. The cartons be thrown away or returned to the store for a refund.

Persons seeking more information about the recall may contact the Conagra Consumer Care telephone line by dialing 800-672-8152.
