Sausage Recalled for Lack of Labels, Milk

San Antonio Packing Company, a San Antonio, Texas, establishment, recalled approximately 9,408 lbs. of Cervelat Summer Sausage this week because it may contain an undeclared allergen, milk.  The recalled products do not have an ingredients statement. The product contains milk, a known potential allergen, which is not declared on the label.

The specific Class 1 (high health risk) recall is for:

16 oz. packages of “APCO BRAND MEATS CERVELAT SUMMER SAUSAGE.” Each package bears the establishment number “EST. 602” inside the USDA mark of inspection and a sell-by date up to Sept. 22, 2010.

These products were produced on various dates from April 14, 2010, through June 22, 2010, and were distributed to HEB retail establishments in South Texas.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

The problem was discovered during a routine review of operations by FSIS at the establishment. FSIS has received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a physician.

Consumer inquiries regarding the recall should be directed to Bobby Castaneda at (210) 224-5441.
