NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A Louisiana company is recalling some stuffed chickens sold nationwide because the label didn't show wheat, a potential allergen.

Managing partner Larry Avery said Wednesday Big Easy Foods LLC of Lake Charles has not received any reports of allergic reactions from the cooked and raw chickens stuffed with pork sausage and potatoes. He says wheat was less than one-tenth of 1 percent of total ingredients.

Avery says it has been removed from the recipe.

He says all recalled products have an expiration date before June 9, 2017.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the recall affected 93,000 pounds of products. Avery says much of that likely has been eaten, since it covers the past 2½ years of production.

Retailers shown on the company's website include Sam's Club and Wal-Mart.
