California firm recalls pork pie products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens
Jolly Good Meat Products, a Los Angeles, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 1,471 pounds of pork meat pie products because of misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The products contain milk, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.
The following products are subject to recall: 7-oz. packages of “Jolly Good Melton Mowbray Brand Pie” bearing the establishment number “Est. 6216” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The packages contain two pork pies. The products were produced on various dates from Nov. 8, 2012 through April 24, 2013. The products were distributed to restaurants and distributors in California.
The problem was discovered by FSIS during a routine label review. Milk is a subingredient of margarine used in the product. While margarine is listed as an ingredient in the product package, milk is not listed. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions associated with consumption of these products.
