Nueske's Applewood Smoked Meats, a Wittenberg, Wis. establishment, is recalling approximately 4,454 pounds of liver paté products because they are misbranded in that they contain the milk protein sodium caseinate, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The products subject to recall are 10-oz. vacuum packed packages of "Nueske's Applewood Smoked Liver Paté." Each package bears the establishment number "Est. 8926" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The packages can be further identified by the use by dates "2/13/13C," "2/19/13C," "2/20/13C," or "3/16/13C," or the Julian code dates "200350C," "200357C," "300015C," or "300022C." The products were produced on various dates between Dec. 15, 2012 and Jan. 22, 2013 and were distributed for retail sale nationwide.

Nueske's Applewood Smoked Meats discovered in a label review that a new shipment of labels incorrectly omitting the sodium caseinate ingredient had been in use since the Dec. 15, 2012 production date. The company then informed FSIS. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions associated with consumption of these products.
