SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas firm is recalling about 29,200 pounds of seasoned raw chicken breast strips due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Friday the recall involves George's Inc. of Springdale.

The products are formulated with soy protein, a known allergen, and monosodium glutamate. But they were released with a label for George's boneless skinless breast pieces with rib meat, which does not declare soy or MSG on the label.

The products were produced and packaged from Dec. 21 through Dec. 23 and were sold to distributors in Tennessee and Iowa for further distribution. The recalled products bear the establishment number "P-13584" below the USDA Mark of Inspection and "Packed on" date in the format of "month-day-year" on the carton label.
