Somerset, NJ-based Red Square Foods Inc. Saturday recalled an undetermined amount of various frozen meat and poultry ravioli and blintzes products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS). The products contain eggs, milk, and/or wheat, all known allergens, which are not declared on the product label.
The frozen not-ready-to-eat meat and poultry products were produced and packaged from October 6, 2016, through October 24, 2018.
The recalled products bear establishment number “EST. 18874” or “P-18874” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
The problem was discovered by FSIS inspectors during routine label verification activities.
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.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ freezers. 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 that recalling firms are notifying their customers of the recall and that actions are being taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list will be posted on the FSIS website.
