Cheap chicken at Walmart Due to incorrect labeling and an omitted allergen, more than 6,000 pounds of chicken products sold at Walmart locations nationwide are being recalled, according to health officials.
According to the Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, Mountain View Packaging LLC issued the recall for approximately 6,013 pounds of frozen, ready-to-eat Crispy Chicken with Almond entrée products.
The product had been labeled as an entree with crispy chicken and almonds, but a customer complained that they discovered shrimp in their product.

The recalled goods were distributed to Walmart locations across 28 states. The biggest retailer in the country published a 23-page list of all the impacted stores online.
The recall notice states that the product’s lot code is 22321-1, its UPC is 695119120499, and its “best by” date is May 24, 2023.
No adverse reactions to the recalled products have been reported as of yet. Still, the recall notice advised customers to speak with a doctor if they had any concerns about illnesses or injuries.
Additionally, consumers are told to return or discard the goods. Also forbidden from sale are by retailers.
