Two food recalls affect tons of product

Two food recalls, involving tons of product, have been issued for items sold in New York State, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

— Conagra Brands is recalling nearly 60 tons of P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Beef & Broccoli pouches due to misbranding in that they were found to contain undeclared egg, a known allergen. The recall doesn’t include P.F. Chang Restaurant products.

— Rachael’s Food Corporation, a Chicopee, Mass., business, is recalling more than a ton of ready-to-eat meat and poultry wrap products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns, although it can be a risk to others.

Further information on the recalls, including packaging descriptions and codes, along with other alerts posted by the federal agency, is available at
