63 pounds of dumplings recalled
M&P Food Production, a Brooklyn, N.Y. establishment, is recalling 63 pounds of Veal Russian Brand dumplings because the dumplings are misbranded in that they may contain pork, which is not declared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced.
The products subject to recall include 16-ounce packages of "Russian Brand Dumplinghs-Veal." Each bag or box bears the establishment number "EST. 18832" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were packaged on Oct. 27, 2011 and have a Use By/Sell By date of April 27, 2012, and were distributed to retail stores in Pennsylvania.
The problem was discovered after an FSIS inspector collected a sample for species analysis. That sample tested positive for pork and beef. FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses or adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
