Foster Farms is recalling approximately 15,040 pounds of turkey burgers because they contain a seasoning mix with hydrolyzed soy protein, an allergen, not declared on the label.


The problem was discovered during a routine label review by FSIS and occurred as a result of the company receiving a spice mix from its supplier after an ingredient reformulation request by the company to have the hydrolyzed soy ingredient removed. The reformulation included soy, which was not declared on the turkey burger label.

FSIS and the company say they have not received any reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products. 

The recall is of 10-lb. cases containing 30 5.33-oz. “Foster Farms, Ready to Cook, Boneless Mediterranean Style White Turkey Burgers” with the case code 96384 and the following Julian dates: 1362, 2027, 2033, 2039, 2040, 2046, 2054, 2125, 2129, 2130 and 2131.

The product bears the establishment number “P-157” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced on various dates between Dec. 28, 2011, and May 10, 2012, and were sold for institutional use in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
