Truitt Brothers Inc., an East Bernstadt, Ky. establishment is recalling approximately 1.77 million pounds of shelf-stable pasta and ground beef products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced. The products are formulated with hydrolyzed soy protein and dried soy sauce, known allergens, which are not declared on some labels.

The products subject to recall include 3.3-pound cases containing six, 9-ounce microwaveable containers of “Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Skillets SINGLES – ULTIMATE CHEESEBURGER MAC” [a macaroni & cheese product] with a Used By/Sell By date code of “02 MARCH 2014 – 23 OCT 2014.” Identifying case codes are: 00210000432900, 00210000432910, 00210000432925, 00210000464000 and 00210000465100.

The products were produced between May 6, 2013 and Jan. 16, 2014 and shipped to Kraft Foods distribution centers and retail locations nationwide. No other Velveeta or Kraft products are impacted by this recall.

The problem was discovered during a recent routine quality check conducted by the company, which then contacted FSIS. The company believes the problem occurred when a label supplier inadvertently mixed labels with incorrect ingredient lines with labels containing correct ingredient information.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
