WASHINGTON, Oct 31, 2011 - Windsor Quality Food Co. Ltd., a Los Angeles, Calif., establishment is recalling approximately 11,390 pounds of chicken pot pie empanadas that may contain foreign materials, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The products subject to recall include:
  • 10-lb cases each containing 4 boxes of 27 count “MOLLY’S KITCHEN MINI CHICKEN POT PIE EMPANADAS," with the product code of “953397” and best before date of “Aug. 30, 2012.”

The case and box labels bear the establishment number “P-9281” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products subject to recall were produced on Aug. 30, 2011, and shipped to one foodservice distributor for further distribution nationwide.

The problem was discovered by a customer (foodservice distributor) who found pieces of plastic in the product. The problem may have occurred due to a broken piece of equipment utilized during the production process. FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses or injury associated with consumption of these products. Individuals concerned about an illness or injury should contact a healthcare provider.

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.

Consumers and news reporters with questions about the recall should contact Lynn Hall, the company’s Senior Vice President, at (512) 249-3416.
