Food Lion voluntarily recalled Chicken Tenders from stores in Virginia, North Carolina and West Virginia. The label for their chicken tender platters was missing an ingredient that customers should have known about. It wasn't that the ingredient was missing from the tenders. It was that the label did not show that milk was an ingredient. Four different chicken tenders were recalled. They were the ones in the Chicken Tender Party Platter and the 4, 8 and 12-piece homestyle varieties.

Unlisted ingredient

Some consumers always check labels to see if milk is included in the product because some people or someone in their family is allergic to dairy products.

This error could have been detrimental because of the possibility of a life-threatening allergic reaction if the tenders had been consumed.

To help consumers determine if they bought the item in question, another piece of information is the Chicken Tender Platter was purchased from the deli in the three states mentioned. Anyone who bought the recalled item should throw it away or return it to the store where it was purchased for a full refund. Additional information is found on Food Lion's product recall website.

Third recall this month

Food Lion is a 60-year-old store headquartered in Salisbury, North Carolina with more than 1,100 stores in ten states. Unfortunately, this is the third recall this month, and the month is not even over.

Hopefully, for the convenience of customers and everyone concerned, there will be no other recalls anytime soon.

Besides the chicken tender recalls on October 17 with the label error, there were two other recalls. On October 10, Cascadian Farm Organic Cinnamon Raisin Granola Cereal was recalled from Fool Lion and Cascadian Farm because almonds were included which would have been dangerous to consumers who have an almond allergy.

All Food Lion stores were affected by this particular recall.

On October 2, Birds Eye Baby Sweet Peas were recalled because the manufacturer alerted the store that the product might have been contaminated with Listeria and could have been life-threatening if it had been consumed. The item that was suspected of being contaminated was sold at all Food Lion stores in the 4, 10 and 30 distribution centers. Like all other recalled Food Lion products, customers were told not to eat it. Instead, they were advised to discard it or return it to any Food Lion store for a full refund.
