The products were produced on various dates from Nov. 16, 2017, through Nov. 19, 2018, and were shipped to a distributor and to retail locations nationwide. The problem was discovered by FSIS Inspection Program Personnel while conducting a routine label verification task. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, announced the federal service.
