The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-7231” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Texas.
The problem was discovered on Oct. 2, 2017 when a consumer noticed an incorrect label and notified the company, which then notified FSIS.
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.
