Isabella Foods, an El Paso, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 685 pounds of tamale products because of misbranding and undeclared allergens. The products contain wheat or soy, known allergens which are not declared on the label.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • 36-oz. packages containing 12 "Isabella Foods of El Paso Green Chicken Tamales" and bearing the establishment number "P-13389" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
  • 36-oz. packages containing 12 "Isabella Foods of El Paso Red Pork Tamales" and bearing the establishment number "EST. 1960" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The products were produced through Jan. 18, 2013 and distributed and sold to institutions and retail stores in the El Paso, Texas area. The problem was discovered by FSIS in-plant personnel during a routine label review. An FSIS inspector determined that soy was a subcomponent of the textured vegetable protein ingredient in the green chicken tamale product but not declared on the label. During the same review, FSIS also found that wheat was a subcomponent of the masa flour ingredient in the red pork tamale product but not declared on the label. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
