Whole Foods 'chicken salad' recalled for containing no chicken

- Whole Foods has a recall after one of its poultry suppliers mistakenly sent the store a large shipment of “chicken salad” that actually contained tuna.

The Willow Tree Poultry Farm, of Attleboro, Mass., recalled 440 pounds of “buffalo-style chicken salad” — which actually contained tuna salad — after Whole Foods employees discovered the discrepancy while unpacking, the USDA reports.

A spokesperson for Willow Tree told FOX News the packages actually contained cranberry-apple tuna salad.

According to the USDA, the product was pulled for “misbranding,” and containing an “undeclared allergen.” The recall affects 12.5-ounce packages of “chicken salad” shipped to stores in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. Furthermore, each package carried the Whole Foods brand name, and not that of Willow Tree.
