Cloverdale Foods recalling more than 2,600 pounds of beef franks
Cloverdale Foods Co., a Mandan, N.D., establishment, is recalling more than 2,600 pounds of beef franks due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today. The products were formulated with milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The following products are subject to recall:
* 16-ounce packages of Cloverdale Meats “Seattle Mariners Beef Franks.”
* 12-pound cases containing 12 packages of individual 16-ounce packages of Cloverdale Meats “Seattle Mariners Beef Franks.”
The products were produced on Nov. 23 and Dec. 13 with use-by dates of Feb. 21 and March 13, respectively. These products bear the package code Use by 2-21-14 or Use by 3-13-14 and the establishment number “Est. 7603” inside the mark of inspection. The products were sold to retail establishments in Montana, North Dakota and Washington.
The problem was discovered by the company during an internal label review. Non-fat, dry milk is an ingredient used in the product. The problem occurred when the newly designed label included an incorrect ingredient statement, the USDA said. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a health-care provider. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to ensure that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at http://www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
