Puritan Foods Co., Inc., a Boston, Mass., establishment, is recalling approximately 2,476 pounds of raw boneless turkey breasts due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The product contains milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label. 

The product subject to recall is Raw Boneless Turkey Breasts (various weights) with pack dates of June 11 and July 18, 2014. The product was produced on June 11, 2014, and July 18, 2014, and bears the establishment number “P-5933” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The product was distributed to a local distributor, which sold the product to hotels, restaurants and institutions in the New England area.

FSIS personnel discovered the problem while checking product labels. The source materials typically used by the firm do not contain milk. On the two dates in question, the source materials used declared they were “butter basted,” which was not carried over to the finished product label. Milk is a sub-ingredient in butter and must be noted on the label. 

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