Texas firm recalls “gluten-free” chicken strips

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Texas company John Soules Foods Inc recalled about 8,500 pounds of cooked chicken strips marketed as “gluten-free” because they may contain wheat, which could cause an allergic reaction, the U.S. Agriculture Department said on Wednesday.

There have been no reports of illness associated with the “Italian style” and “rotisserie style” chicken strips, which were packaged in 24-ounce bags and distributed in 26 U.S. states, the department said.
