US firm EDS Wrap and Roll Foods is recalling a batch of chicken-based products due to possible links with a multi-state outbreak of salmonellosis.

The 12,460 pounds of frozen chicken egg roll products may possibly contain black pepper spice products that may be linked to the outbreak, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on Saturday (4 April).
The products include 9.38lb packages of EDS Wrap and Roll Foods’ Chicken Egg Roll containing 100 pieces of 1.5oz chicken egg rolls, and 18.75lb packages of the same product containing 100 pieces of 3oz chicken egg rolls.

The products were produced between 28 July 2008 and 27 March 2009 and have case codes 80210 through to 80365 and 90001 through to 90089. The packages have the establishment number P-20350 within the USDA Mark of Inspection printed on the side of the packages.

FSIS learned of the problem from the California Department of Public Health as a result of an ongoing investigation into the recent dry spice recall announced by the US Food and Drug Administration.

FSIS said it has received no reports of illnesses associated with the consumption of the products.

The chicken egg roll products were distributed to restaurants and institutions in California.
