Allergen Alert: Soy, Milk in Beef-Stuffed Potatoes

Al Baghdadi Food of Hazel Park, MI is recalling approximately 5,400 pounds of a stuffed potato product with beef filling because of misbranding and undeclared allergens. The product contains soy and milk, allergens not declared on the label, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said Tuesday.

The omission, discovered during a routine check by the FSIS, occurred because an ingredient supplier reformulated its product and the change was not reflected on the label.

There are no reports of adverse reactions, according to the FSIS news release. The product is safe for people not allergic or sensitive to soy and milk.

The recalled packages contain 12 pieces and are labeled Al Baghdadi Food “Fully Cooked Potato Chop Middle Eastern Brand Mashed Potato Stuffed with Beef Filling Artificially Colored.”

The product bears the establishment number EST. 44182 inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label. The potato chops were produced between Aug. 16, 2011 and April 2, 2012 and were sold to retail stores, institutions and wholesale establishments in Arizona, Illinois and Michigan. When available, the retail distribution list will be posted on the <a href="www.fsis.usda.gov/FSIS_Recalls/

Open_Federal_Cases/index.asp”>FSIS website.
