Giant Eagle recalls Chicken Street Taco Kits

PITTSBURGH — Giant Eagle Inc. has issued a voluntarily recall of Chicken Street Taco Kits due to the possibility the product may contain an undeclared egg allergen. 

Those who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs could experience a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The impacted products have “sell by” dates through May 28 and can be identified by PLU 56598 located in the upper right corner of the item’s scale tag. The recalled items were sold in the prepared foods departments at Giant Eagle and Market District locations in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Indiana.

Giant Eagle was made aware of the issue by its supplier partner, Reser’s Fine Foods, when they discovered the product was missing the egg allergen declaration in one of the ingredients, chipotle crema. There has been no reported illness associated with the recall, a news release states.

Customers who have purchased the affected product should dispose of it and return a qualifying receipt to their local Giant Eagle or Market District store for a refund. Customers with questions can call Giant Eagle Customer Care at 800-553-2324 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Insight Clinical Counseling and Wellness opens in Canfield

CANFIELD — Insight Clinical Counseling and Wellness LLC will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at noon Thursday at its newest office, 3685 Stutz Drive, Suite 103.

The Canfield facility is the third office the mental health and wellness practice has opened in a little over a year. Insight also has locations in East Liverpool and Salem. Its team has grown from one counselor to 22 mental health and wellness professionals. 

“With May being Mental Health Awareness Month, we couldn’t think of a more fitting time to officially open our Canfield office and welcome in the community,” Jessica Oates, Insight founder and counselor, said in a news release.

At the Canfield location, Insight will begin offering wellness services including reiki, massotherapy and nutrition.

The office also will offer parent-child interaction therapy, a form of therapy that encourages play and interaction between the parent and child through the supervision of a certified therapist.
