Stehouwer's Frozen Foods, a Grand Rapids, Mich. establishment, is recalling approximately 6,039 pounds of Pigs in the Blanket products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen, milk, which is not declared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced.

The products subject to recall include 13.5-pound cases and 5-pound bulk packages of "Stehouwer's Pigs in the Blanket." Each case contains 12 individual 18-oz. packages of "Stehouwer's Pigs in the Blanket." The products were produced on Sept. 27, 2012, Oct. 25, 2012, and Dec. 13, 2012, and they have use by dates of Sept. 27, 2013, Oct. 25, 2013, and Dec. 13, 2013. The bulk packages of "Stehouwer's Pigs in the Blanket." These packages are labeled "FOR INSTITUTIONAL USE ONLY." They were produced on Oct. 25, 2012, and have the use by date of 102513.

Each case and package bears the establishment number "EST. 6814" inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were distributed for institutional use and to retail stores in Michigan. The problem was discovered by FSIS inspection personnel during a routine label review. The FSIS inspector saw that nonfat milk was listed as an ingredient in the mix used to make the dough for this product, but it was not listed on the final product label. The ingredient supplier had changed its spice mix components in the time since Stehouwer's Frozen Foods had created labels for the Pigs in the Blanket products. FSIS and the company have not received reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
