Natural foods company Kashi recalled about 2,790 pounds of Kashi Southwest Style Chicken meals because the packages may have a different meal -- Kashi Chicken Pasta Pomodoro -- packaged in the box, said the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The pasta meal contains egg, which may cause an allergic reaction in some consumers. The problem was discovered when customers complained that the product wasn't correctly labeled, USDA said. So far, no one has gotten sick from eating the meals.

Included in the recall is the 10-ounce Kashi Southwest Style Chicken entrees with the UPC code 1862729292 and the lot code of DEC28 11 RF B1. Request Foods Inc. of Holland, Mich. produced the chicken entrees for Kashi on Dec. 28, 2010 and shipped the meals to stores nationwide.

Consumers can call Kashi at (877) 864-3523 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time.

Last fall, a production mishap put Peanut Butter Flavor Granola Thins into some boxes of Nature Valley Dark Chocolate Flavor Granola Thins -- prompting a recall by maker General Mills.
