WASHINGTON (CBS5) -

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced the recall of 1.25 million pounds of frozen par-fried chicken tenders Monday. 

FSIS says the products produced by Arkansas-based George's Inc. include wheat, a known allergen, but it wasn't on the label.

The products include:

  • 10-lb. cases of "George's Uncooked Breaded Chicken Breast Tenderloins" with Case Code 4831 and packaging dates between Feb. 21, 2013 and Dec. 19, 2013.
  • 10-lb. cases of "George's Uncooked Chicken Tenderloin Fritters" with Case Code 4861 and packaging dates between Feb. 21, 2013 and Jan. 4, 2014.
  • 10-lb. cases of "George's Uncooked Chicken Tenderloin Fritters" with Case Code 4880 and packaging dates between Feb. 21, 2013 and Jul. 19, 2013.

The products have the establishment number "P-13584" under the USDA Mark of Inspection and were sold to wholesale locations for nationwide distribution.

George's Inc. discovered the issue during a routine label review and traced it to printer issues that caused some labels to print without some ingredients. The company said the glitch has since been corrected.

FSIS and the company have not received any reports of reactions to the chicken. Customers with questions can contact Ali Perry at 479-927-7256.
