NORTH KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Walker's Food Products Co. in Missouri recalled approximately 2,200 pounds of chicken salad products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said the products were formulated with a soy protein concentrate, a known allergen, which was not properly declared on the labels.

The products subject to recall include:

-- 5-pound plastic tubs of Walker's All White Chunky Chicken Salad with packaging dates between June 6, 2013, and Jan. 23, 2014, and use by/sell by dates between July 26, 2013, and March 14, 2014, and sold to wholesale locations in Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.

-- 1-lb. plastic tubs of Walker's All White Chunky Chicken Salad with packaging dates between June 6, 2013, and Jan. 23, 2014, and use by/sell by dates between July 26, 2013, and March 14, 2014, and sold to retail locations in Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.

-- 5-lb. tubs of Walker's White Chicken Salad Florentine with packaging dates between June 6, 2013, and Jan. 27, 2014, and use by/sell by dates between July 14, 2013, and March 6, 2014, and sold to wholesale locations for distribution in Kansas and Missouri.

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number P-13335 inside the USDA Mark of Inspection.

The problem was discovered by an FSIS in-plant inspector during a routine label review. The problem occurred after a change in product suppliers without a corresponding change in label, the FSIS said.

Neither the FSIS nor the company received any reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. However, for individuals allergic to soy, consumption of soy protein concentrate presents a reasonable probability of serious health consequences or death. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact James Daskaleas at 1-816-472-8121, ext. 15.
