Bacon packaged with improper labels recalled
DaBecca Natural Foods, a Chicago, Ill. establishment, is recalling approximately 3,450 pounds of bacon products due to misbranding, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.
The bacon products were produced on November 13, 2014. The products subject to recall include 15-lb. bulk cases of DaBecca Sliced Uncured Apple Smoked Bacon (12 – 14 slices per lb.) with case code 114670 30814.
The products subject to recall, though produced under inspection, were packaged and shipped with labels that did not bear the USDA mark of inspection. These products were shipped to institutional distributors in California and Texas.
The problem was discovered during a routine label review conducted by FSIS inspectors at a distribution facility. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
