Campos Foods, LLC, a Caryville, Tenn. establishment, is recalling approximately 136,950 pounds of beef products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products contain wheat, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.

HEB CheeseburgersThe Ready-To-Eat (RTE) cheese burger items were produced on various dates between Aug. 22, 2014 and Jan. 9, 2015. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF Only)]

  • 15-lb. case containing eight 3.75 oz. burgers of “H-E-B FULLY COOKED THICK N’ TASTY Bacon CHEESE BURGERS NATURAL SMOKE FLAVOR ADDED.”
  • 15-lb. case containing eight 3.75 oz. burgers of “H-E-B FULLY COOKED THICK N’ TASTY CHEESE BURGERS NATURAL SMOKE FLAVOR ADDED.”

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 2260 T” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items produced were shipped to retail locations in Texas.

The problem was discovered when plant management approached the FSIS Inspector of a possible wheat contamination from a spice mix that was being used to formulate the product.

Regarding the comment that "FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products:" this claim drives me cuckoo - the chance that someone eating a burger and used to eating burgers (without the buns, one would assume) and making a connection that the resultant "adverse" effects were from that meal, it seems to me, would be slim to none. So you get a headache - or the next morning you have diarrhea, or you just feel bloated and generally yukkie - whatever the result -- it could still be an endless list of "something elses" that caused the problem. And how does one acquire "natural smoke flavor" anyway? The best advice in these situations? Don't eat anything with a bar code.

Yes, that would be awkward

Does this mean she has a wheat allergy that is diagnosed? If so that is good as it will help get that 504 in place!

Ah yes... dry beans. I am fortunate to live near a plant that only processes beans, pulses and rice (Western Rice Mills if you're on the west coast). I doubt that they test, but I would suspect that the biggest part of the risk with that type of food is in the plant where they pack them, as ...
