Meat Lasagna Sold Nationwide Recalled for Undeclared Allergens

An Illinois-based firm is recalling approximately 96,408 pounds of meat lasagna products because they contain undeclared allergens.

Windsor Quality Food Co. of Toluca, IL issued a voluntary recall of two types of meat lasagna Wednesday because they contain egg and soy, both known allergens, but these ingredients are not named on product labels.

The products subject to recall are:

– Retail cartons of “Safeway Select Five Cheese Lasagna,” with package code April 4, 2013

– Shipping cases of “Safeway Select Meat Lasagna” with a Best By date of April 4, 2013

The products in question were produced on April 4, 2012 and were distributed to retail locations in Alaska, California, Colorado, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Maryland, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wyoming.

The misbranding was discovered after the company received two consumer complaints. It may have been due to the meat lasagna being accidentally packaged in a cheese lasagna box, according to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

No allergic reactions related to eating this food have been reported.

Consumers wwho have questions about the recall  should call Windsor Foods’ toll free customer service line at 800-548-6363.
