Amboy Group, LLC, a Woodbridge, N.J. establishment, is recalling an undetermined amount of raw boneless and skinless poultry products because the products are misbranded and may contain milk, egg, and soy, known allergens, which are not declared on the finished product label.

The raw boneless and skinless poultry products were produced on various dates from Dec. 5, 2016 through Dec. 5, 2018. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF Only)]

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-33789” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in New Jersey.

The problem was discovered on Dec. 5, 2018 by FSIS inspection program personnel while conducting a routine label verification task.

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.

When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
