Two brands of frozen, ready-to-eat chicken samosas are being recalled due to inspection issues.  Houston, Texas-based Haliz Foods is voluntarily recalling specific packages of their Raza and Taza-brand chicken samosas due to the fact that the poultry ingredient was produced without the benefit of Federal inspection.  The anouncement came in association with the United States Food and Drug Administration.

The problem came to the attention of officials with the United States Food and Drug Administrations Food Safety and Inspection Service conducted a routine in-plant verification process and determined that the ground chicken used in the samosas was not federally inspected prior to use.  At this time there have been no known or confirmed cases of adverse reactions due to consumption of the food products.  The recall stems only from the prior lack of inspection of the ingredient.

Here are the specific details of the products being recalled:

  • 2-oz. box packages labeled “RAZA FOODS Chicken Samosa” with date codes 05/21, 06/21, or 0518021 through 0629021, or 5182021 through 6292021 (inclusive).
  • 12-oz. box packages labeled “TAZA CHICKEN SAMOSAS” with date codes 05/21, 06/21, or 0518021 through 0629021, or 5182021 through 6292021 (inclusive).
  • 100-oz clear plastic bags containing approximately 100 chicken samosas that do not bear any labeling or codes.
