Raw meat products recalled due to undeclared alelrgens
Procesadora La Hacienda, Inc., a Juncos, Puerto Rico establishment, is recalling approximately 140 pounds of raw meat products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The product contains wheat and whey (milk), known allergens which are not declared on the product label.
The raw seasoned meat items were packed on June 10, 2016 and Feb. 7, 2017. The following products are subject to recall:
- 10-lb box containing 2 pieces of 5-lb “Seasoned Meat” chubs.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “21217A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to restaurant and cafeteria locations in Puerto Rico.
The problem was discovered when an FSIS employee found that a primary ingredient’s sub-ingredients, which included whey (milk) and wheat, were not listed on the product label. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
