Beef and poultry products recalled from the American market
Fieldsource Food Systems, a California establishment, is forced to recall from the market more than 5.8 tonnes of diced beef and chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The products contain wheat, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The uncooked, marinated, diced beef and chicken cubes were produced from June 9 through July 10, 2019, and shipped to grocery stores in California and used behind the deli counter. The problem was discovered during routine label verifications being performed by FSIS.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to the consumption of these products. FSIS is concerned that some product may be in refrigerators or freezers behind the deli counter in grocery stores. The delis should not use the products. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
