9.25-oz. cartons labeled as “Healthy Choice POWER BOWLS Korean-Style Beef” with lot code “5246220320” and a “best if used by” date of 04-18-2023.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “34622” on the end flap of the carton. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
The problem was discovered when the producing establishment notified FSIS that it had received consumer complaints that the Korean-Style Beef cartons contained a chicken-based product.

Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider, FSIS noted.
