These Chicken Meals were known to be marketed, distributed and sold in from Weis Markets located in the US states of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, although it is always possible these food products had wider distribution within the country. When in doubt, please contact the manufacturer for specific product information.

This Public Health Alert was initiated after Weis Markets, a Sunbury, Pennsylvania establishment reported it had been using correctly labeled, USDA inspected and passed Chicken products containing Milk ingredients but did not update their in-store labels for General Tso Chicken meals to include Milk as an ingredient.

According to the USDA, its Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) has issued a Public Health Alert against consuming certain batch/lots of Weis Markets’ ready-to-eat (“RTE”) General Tso Chicken Meals from the American marketplace due to suspected mislabeling and consequential undeclared Milk.

Proposed Remedy:
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of these recalled Weis General Tso Chicken Meals and could be allergic to their Milk ingredients, have a close family member who is allergic or has previously experienced Anaphylaxis or are unsure of your allergy status, please do not consume them. Instead, return the product to the distributor or wholesaler where you purchased it for a full refund.
