Each box bears a label with the establishmet number “Est. 7066” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced from Jan. 16, 2012 to the present and were sent to distribution centers in Dallas, Texas and Indianapolis, Ind. for institutional use.
The company discovered the problem during a label review. The company received a spice mix from its supplier that contained hydrolyzed whey and casein protein, and the product label does not declare the allergens as ingredients in the sausage. FSIS and the company have not received any reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
