R&R Provision Company Inc. in Easton, PA, Thursday recalled 23,040 pounds of breaded veal products because of misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The products contain whey and nonfat milk, known allergens, which are not declared on the products’ labels, according to the recall notice.
The breaded veal items were produced from April 14 through Nov. 17. The products included in the recall can be identified by the following labeling and packaging information:
- 5.3-OZ. Plastic sealed packages containing 30 pieces of “BREADED VEAL STEAKS” bearing package code RR27-4102.
7.5-OZ. Plastic sealed packages containing 20 pieces of “BREADED VEAL STEAKS” bearing package code RR27-4142.
- 5.3-OZ. Plastic sealed packages containing 30 pieces of “BREADED VEAL STEAKS” bearing the package code RR27-4122.
- 4-OZ. Plastic sealed packages containing 40 pieces of “BREADED VEAL STEAKS” bearing the package code RR27-4132.
- 4-OZ. Plastic sealed packages containing 30 pieces of “BREADED VEAL PATTIES” bearing the package code RR27-4092.
- 5.3-OZ. Plastic sealed packages containing 40 pieces of “BREADED VEAL PATTIES” bearing the package code RR27-5002.
These products have the establishment number “EST. 1081” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The items were shipped to restaurants in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and sold at the R&R Provision Company retail store.
The problem was discovered Wednesday by FSIS Inspection Program Personnel while they were performing routine labeling verifications. The establishment received a letter from their breading supplier specifying the incorporation of new ingredients, but the change was not carried over onto the final R&R product labels.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution lists will be posted on the FSIS website.
