The Turkey Enchilada items were produced on March 28, 2016. The Lemon Pepper Chicken items were produced on March 25, 2016. The following products are subject to recall:

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-827” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the sealed tray packages. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
