Burgers Recalled for Undeclared Allergens

The United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Saturday that J&B Group of Pipestone, Minnesota, was recalling approximately 456 pounds of steakhouse burgers for misbranding and undeclared allergens. 

According to a press release issued by FSIS, the steakhouse burgers contain a seasoning mix with hydrolyzed soy and wheat proteins that are not declared on the label.

– 27-oz packages containing 6 4.5-oz. “No Name, Roasted Peppers, Onions and Mozzarella Cheese Steakhouse Burgers” with a Julian date of “03312.”

– Shipping cases of “Beef Steakburger with Steakhouse Seasoning” with serial numbers of “1049XXX” a case code of “19051” and the Julian date “03312.”

The products can be further identified by the printed “Est. 8934” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were packaged on February 3, 2012 and were distributed to retail outlets in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

According to FSIS, packages labeled “No Name, Roasted Peppers, Onions and Mozzarella Cheese” were incorrectly packed and instead contain a “Steakhouse Burger.” Soy and wheat are not included in the product’s ingredient list on the label.

FSIS and the company have not received any reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
