135,000 pounds of burgers recalled due to allergen
Campos Foods LLC, a Caryville, Tenn. establishment, is recalling approximately 136,950 pounds of beef products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The products contain wheat, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The Ready-To-Eat (RTE) cheese burger items were produced on various dates between Aug. 22, 2014 and Jan. 9, 2015. The following products are subject to recall:
- 15-lb. case containing eight 3.75 oz. burgers of “H-E-B FULLY COOKED THICK N’ TASTY Bacon CHEESE BURGERS NATURAL SMOKE FLAVOR ADDED.”
- 15-lb. case containing eight 3.75 oz. burgers of “H-E-B FULLY COOKED THICK N’ TASTY CHEESE BURGERS NATURAL SMOKE FLAVOR ADDED.”
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 2260 T” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items produced were shipped to retail locations in Texas.
The problem was discovered when plant management approached the FSIS Inspector of a possible wheat contamination from a spice mix that was being used to formulate the product. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
