Undeclared Allergen Causes Mass Frozen Meal Recall

Blount Fine Corp. has issued a high health risk recall for one of their frozen meal varieties.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) confirmed that the recall was issued due to “misbranding and an undeclared allergen” which was allegedly reported by a consumer.

The products in question are the Beef Chile Colorado frozen meals manufactured by the Texas -based company.

The recall affects approximately 8,685 pounds of the 10oz meals that contain cheese enchiladas with undeclared milk as an ingredient on the label.

The items were produced on November 23, 2016 and were shipped to Pennsylvania and Texas. The package reads: “SAFFRON ROAD BEEF CHILE COLORADO WITH MESQUITE BLACK BEANS & GARLIC RICE” with “Best By” dates of May 23, 2018.

No illnesses have been reported yet but FSIS is urging everyone who have purchased these meals to throw them out or return them back to where they were purchased.

If you have any questions, you can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual customer service representative at AskKaren.gov. You can also contact the USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) between 10:00am to 6:00pm Monday through Friday.
