Vanee Foods, a Broadview, Ill. establishment is recalling approximately 3,156 pounds of turkey base because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The turkey base which contains milk was misbranded as chicken base that does not include milk. As the product contains milk, a known allergen which was not declared on the label, the product is being recalled.

The product subject to recall is Imperial Sysco Turkey Base in 1-lb. tubs labeled as Chicken Base with SUPC # 4944450, 6 per case with case codes 01734-6700 ending in 0784-5; the outer cases are labeled as Turkey Base.

The product, produced on March 19, 2014, bears the establishment number “P-19339” inside the USDA mark of inspection both on the product and on the cases containing the product.  After production, the products were shipped to food service distribution centers in Pennsylvania, Florida, Oregon, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Virginia.

The problem was discovered after one of the company’s customers found tubs labeled as chicken base in cases labeled as containing turkey base.  Following a quality check by the company, the company found that turkey base had mistakenly been packaged into tubs labeled for chicken base. 

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