Allergen Alert: Milk in Beef Sirloin

J&B Group of St. Michael, MN is recalling approximately 2,645 pounds of beef sirloin products because they are misbranded and contain milk, an allergen that is not listed on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said Friday. 

The company discovered during a routine label review that the wrong ingredient statement had been entered into the labeling system.

There have been no reports of adverse reactions.

The recall is for:

– 10.5-lb cases of 28 count, 6 oz. “ELLISON MEAT COMPANY BEEF SIRLOIN TOP BUTT STEAK, CAP OFF, NO ROLL, MARINATED,” with an identifying case code of 62149.

– 10-lb cases of 16 count, 10 oz. “ELLISON MEAT COMPANY BEEF SIRLOIN TOP BUTT STEAK CAP OFF / TENDERIZED WITH FICIN & BROMELAIN,” with an identifying case code of 62151.

The recalled products bear the establishment number “EST. 15805” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products were produced between Jan. 1, 2011 and Sept. 7, 2011, and were distributed for institutional use in Montana, North Dakota and Texas.
