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.

When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Chris Rodney, Assistant VP for Sales, at (405)-603-7500. Media with questions about the recall can contact Jim English, President and COO, at (405) 603-7500.

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.
