WASHINGTON, June 26, 2018 – Aunt Kitty’s Foods, Inc. of Vineland, N.J. is recalling approximately 10,805 pounds of canned chicken gravy products due to a possible processing deviation that may have led to underprocessing of products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.  This is a Class 1 Recall, indicating a high level of potential danger to consumers.

           The canned chicken gravy was produced on April 4, 2018. The following product is subject to recall:

  • 10.5-oz. canned “ShopRite Chicken Gravy” with lot code 1809515, 1809525, 1809535, and 1809545 and a best by date of June 2021.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-864” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in New Jersey and New York.

The problem was discovered on June 19, 2018 during the establishment’s labeling process, which detected multiple bulging cans of chicken gravy.  FSIS was notified on June 21, 2018.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.  

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution lists will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
