The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 17426” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were distributed through distribution facilities to retail stores in Chicago and Texas.
The problem was discovered on May 22, 2018, after the firm received a customer’s complaint about the product. The firm notified FSIS of the problem.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators or frozen and in consumers’ freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
