The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-9267A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to an institutional location in California.
The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that a third-party consultant identified the mislabeling.
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 institutional freezers. Institutions that have purchased these products are urged not to serve them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms are notifying their customers of the recall and that actions are being taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
