Taza Chicken Samosas Recalled For Lack of Inspection

Hafiz Foods of Houston, Texas is recalling about 675 pounds of Taza Chicken Samosas and Raza Foods Chicken Samosas because they contain poultry that were not inspected. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions associated with these recalled products reported to the company to date.

The ready to cook, frozen chicken samosas were produced from May 2020 to June 29, 2020. The recalled products are:

  • 12-ounce box packages labeled “RAZA FOODS Chicken Samosa” with date codes 05/21, 06/21, or 0527021 through 062921 (inclusive).
  • 12-ounce box packages labeled “TAZA CHICKEN SAMOSAS” with date codes 05/21, 06/21, or 0527021 through 062921 (inclusive).
  • 100-ounce clear plastic bags containing about 100 chicken samosas that do not bear any labeling or codes.

These products have the establishment number “EST. 44163” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to retail and deli locations in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia. The unlabeled and uncoded plastic bag items were donated to community organizations in the Houston, Texas area in May and June 2020.

The problem was discovered when FSIS conducted routine in-plant verification activities. Officials found that the ground chicken that was used to make the samosas was not federally inspected.

FSIS thinks that some of these products may be frozen in consumers’ homes freezers. Please check your freezer to see if you have any. If you do, do not eat them. Throw them away in a secure garbage can or take them back to the store where you purchased them for a full refund.

Meanwhile, FSIS is conducting retail effectiveness checks to make sure that the firm is notifying its customers about the recall and that the product is no longer available on store shelves.
