Meat products recalled due to undeclared allergens
Products contain soy and wheat that are not on the product label
Oakland, Calif.-based Blossom Foods, LLC, is recalling more than 15,000 pounds of beef, chicken and pork products due to an undeclared allergen.
The frozen products were produced from Aug. 23, 2016 to Aug. 23, 2017, and have an expiration date of one year from the date of packaging. The products contain undeclared soy and wheat.
The following products are part of the recall:
- 6.6-lb. case of “Barbequed Beef, Corn, Baked Beans”
- 5.5-lb. case of “Barbeque Beef”
- 10-lb. case of “Savory Beef”
- 5.5-lb. case of “Sesame chicken
- 10-lb. case of “Spanish Beef”
- 5.5-lb. case of “Barbeque Pork”
- 5.5-lb. case of “Breakfast Sausage”
- 10-lb. case of “Beef”
- 6.5-lb. case of “Chicken and Dumplings, Peas, Rutabaga”
The products bear establishment number “EST. 51200” or “P-51200” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were shipped to institutional locations in California and Ohio.
The problem was discovered when FSIS Inspection Program Personnel observed that the establishment utilizes a soy protein concentrate in the production of several products, but the finished product labels do not declare soy. In addition, some of the same products contain wheat flour and wheat is also not declared on the finished product labels.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Sue Adams, CEO, at 510-893-3244.
