Meat pies recalled due to production without inspection, undeclared allergens
Solomon Snacks and Bakery, a New Brighton, Minn. establishment, is recalling approximately 873 pounds of meat pie products that were produced without the benefit of federal inspection and due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The products contain eggs, milk, and wheat, known allergens, which are not declared on the finished product label.
The beef, chicken, and turkey meat pie items were produced on various dates from Feb. 2016 to May 2016. The following products are subject to recall:
- 5-oz. packages containing one “Solomon Snacks and Bakery Meat Pie Beef,”
- 5-oz. packages containing one “Solomon Snacks and Bakery Meat Pie Chicken,”
- 5-oz. packages containing one “Solomon Snacks and Bakery Meat Pie Turkey,”
- Unlabeled Styrofoam boxes lined with wax paper containing 5-oz. frozen meat pie products produced by Solomon Snacks and Bakery.
The products subject to recall do not bear the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Illinois and Minnesota. The products distributed in Illinois were in Styrofoam boxes and void of all labeling.
The problem was discovered by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which notified FSIS. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
