Fiorucci Foods Inc., a South Chesterfield, Va. establishment, is recalling approximately 2,650 pounds of mortadella because the product contains pistachio nuts, a known allergen, that are not declared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The products subject to recall include:

·         Cases containing two (2), 6-8 lb. bulk deli packages of "BLACK BEAR OF THE BLACK FOREST MORTADELLA" with an identifying case code of "510411." These products were shipped to retailers in New Jersey and New York.

·         Cases containing two (2), 5-7 lb. bulk deli packages of "COLOSSEUM MORTADELLA" with an identifying case code of "50405." These products were shipped to distributors in Miami, Fla. and Chicago, Ill.

Both products subject to recall were produced on Nov. 10, 2012, and bear the establishment number "EST. 4058" inside the USDA mark of inspection with a sell by date of Feb. 10, 2013.

The problem was discovered by the company, who notified FSIS. The company produces mortadella with and without pistachios, and has correct labels for both products. This problem occurred when the label for the product without pistachios was incorrectly placed on product containing pistachios. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions this time.
