The recalled products bear the establishment number “EST. 6266″ or “Est. P-6266″ inside the USDA mark of inspection. They also bear the identifying case code “110622.”

“The products were produced on Dec. 6, 2012, and distributed to foodservice and institutional customers, as well as an industrial customer in the distribution areas noted above,” a recall statement read.

The problem was discovered by the company through microbiological testing.

No illnesses have been connected to the recall at this time. However, due to the time it takes to trace foodborne illnesses back to their source, it is not possible to say whether any illnesses have been caused.
