Misbranded lasagna recalled
Michael Angelo’s Gourmet Foods, Inc., an Austin, Texas establishment, is recalling approximately 1,575 pounds of vegetable lasagna products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced. The product may contain turkey, as well as eggs, a known allergen, which are not declared on the product label.
The frozen lasagna items were produced on Feb. 12, 2016. The following products are subject to recall: 10-oz. boxes containing plastic trays labeled “Michael Angelo’s Vegetable Lasagna” with a packaging date of Feb. 12, 2016.
Due to a packaging error, the 10-oz. cartons are labeled as “Michael Angelo’s Vegetable Lasagna,” however, the packages contain a turkey lasagna product, which contains eggs. The products subject to recall do not bear the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a distributor in Indiana.
The problem was discovered after the firm received complaints from customers. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
