K & W Sausage, an Evansdale, Iowa, establishment, is recalling approximately 1,761 pounds of sausage products because of misbranding and undeclared allergens. The products contain soy and wheat, known allergens, which are not declared on the product labels.

The products subject to recall include:

  • 16-oz. vacuum packed “Hot Franks” with a packaging code in the format “###14”
  • Various size packages of “Polish Sausage Hot” with packaging codes 15314, 15514, 16114, 16214, 16814, 16514, or 16914
  • Various size packages of “Beef Polish Sausage Hot” with packaging codes 15314, 15514, 16114, 16214, 16814, 16514, or 16914

The products subject to recall bear “EST. 15708” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the labels. The Hot Franks were produced on various dates from January 16, through June 20, 2014. The other products were produced on various dates from June 3, through June 18, 2014. All products were distributed to retailers in Iowa.

The problem was discovered by FSIS inspection personnel during a food safety assessment. After investigation, it was determined that the “natural hot flavor” used in the products contained wheat and soy as sub-ingredients of soy sauce. The mislabeling in the Polish sausage products occurred due to a change to using this ingredient. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products
