Please review the following message from Alan Talarsky, Environmental Scientist 1, Food and Drug Safety Program, DHSS, concerning the following three Class 1 food recalls. Two were issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and one from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

Unilever of Englewood Cliffs, NJ is voluntarily recalling "Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon" Cubes, UPC # 4800171162, Best if Used by MAR 17 2007, because it contains fish flavored bouillon cubes and therefore the presence of fish is undeclared.
