Burger’s Ozark Country Cured in California, MO, is recalling 1,905 pounds of fully cooked turkey products because of misbranding, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The fully cooked turkeys were produced on Nov. 22, 2016, and packaged on Nov. 23, 2016, according to the Jan. 18 recall notice. Consumers can identify the recalled by looking for the following label information on the vacuum-sealed packaging:
- “Harry & David Ready to Heat Fully Cooked Turkey without Giblets” with a case code of V20HD2MV and lot number 3276 or 3286.
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-1161” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products were sent to a distribution center in Ohio for further distribution. No other distribution details were included in the recall notice.
The problem was discovered Jan. 16 when a customer observed the wrong label was applied to the product. The mislabeled turkey product contains sodium nitrite, which is not declared on the label. On Jan. 17, 2017, the establishment notified FSIS that the firm wanted to recall the mislabeled product.
There haven’t been any confirmed reports of adverse reactions connected to consumption of these turkeys. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
