Allergy Alert: Wheat, Soy in Turkey

Kuck’s Turkey Farm of St. Marys, OH, is recalling approximately 2,325 pounds of fully cooked skinless turkey breasts that contain wheat and soy, which are not declared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Thursday.

Wheat and soy are known allergens.

FSIS said an inspector conducting a routine labeling review discovered the issue. There have been no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the turkey. 

The recall is for cartons containing 7- and 8-lb. packages of “AMISH HERITAGE ‘ROTISSERIE SEASONINGS’ TURKEY BREAST” with the establishment number “P-34592” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the package label, a sticker with sell-by dates from 10/09/11 to 11/28/11 on each package, and a case code of “62012” on each carton.

The turkey was processed between Sept. 4, 2011, and Oct. 14, 2011 and shipped to a distributor and a retail establishment in Ohio. 

Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact the company’s manager, Karl Kuck, at 419-753-2620.
