North Dakota firm recalls beef franks due to misbranding, undeclared allergen
Cloverdale Foods Co., a Mandan, N.D., establishment, is recalling approximately 2,664 pounds of beef franks due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products were formulated with milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The products subject to recall include 16-ounce packages and 12-pound cases (containing 12 packages of 16-ounce packages) of Cloverdale Meats “Seattle Mariners Beef Franks.” The products were produced on November 23 and December 13, 2013, with use-by dates of February 21 and March 13, 2014 respectively. These products bear the package code Use by 2-21-14 or Use by 3-13-14 and the establishment number “Est. 7603” inside the mark of inspection. The products were sold to retail establishments in Montana, North Dakota and Washington State.
The problem was discovered by the company during an internal label review. Non-fat dry milk is an ingredient used in the product. The problem occurred when the newly designed label included an incorrect ingredient statement. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
