Allergen Alert: Marinated Meat with Wheat, Soy, Milk, Sulfites

Shamrock Foods of Phoenix, AZ, is recalling approximately 7,500 pounds of marinated beef and marinated chicken  because the marinated beef contains soybeans, wheat, and sulfites, and the marinated chicken contains wheat, milk and sulfites — all known allergens that are not declared on the label for either product.

The problem was discovered by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service during a routine inspection.

In the recall alert late Friday, FSIS and the company said they have received no reports of adverse reactions. 

The recalled products are:

– Cases containing 2 10-lb. packages of “Chicken, Breast Double Lobe Marinated Randoms”  with the number of 2844671.

— Cases containing 2 10-lb packages of “Beef Chuck, Shoulder Clod 1/2 Sliced Marinated USDA Prime” with the number of 3096311.

The recalled products were produced from Dec. 1 through Dec. 29, 2011, and shipped to food service institutions in Arizona.
