Incomplete labels prompt recall
J Bar B Foods of Waelder is recalling 64,020 pounds of a smoked sausage product that contains whey and casein, both known allergens, which aren’t declared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Monday.
The company discovered the problem during a label review.
Neither the company nor the FSIS has received any reports of adverse reactions because of consumption of the product.
The recall affects 11-pound boxes of Eckrich Smoked Sausage Made with Pork and Beef with a sell-by date of March 26, 2012, or later.
Each box bears a label with the establishment number “Est. 7066” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The products were produced from Jan. 16, 2012, to now and were sent to distribution centers in Dallas and Indianapolis, Ind. for institutional use.
Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Bonnie Hyman, J Bar B Foods’ Public Relations Manager, at (830) 788-7511.
