WASHINGTON – 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 today. 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. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and 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.   back...
