Perdue Premium Meat Company, Inc., doing business as Alexander & Hornung, a Saint Clair Shores, MI, establishment, recalled approximately 3,204 pounds of fully cooked beef wiener products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).

The product may actually contain smoked sausage, which contains milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the wiener product label. 

The fully cooked beef wieners were produced on May 3, 2023. The following product is subject to recall:

  • 2-lbs. Vacuum-sealed packages labeled “BROOKSIDE BRAND FULLY COOKED NATURAL CASING BEEF WIENERS” with lot code 3121, case code 07658, and sell by date of 8/1/23. 

The mistakes were discovered when the establishment notified FSIS that one of their customers reported receiving products labeled as beef wieners in cartons labeled as hot smoked sausage. The vacuum-sealed packages labeled as beef wieners were then found to contain the smoked sausages.

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 routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to ensure that the product is no longer available to consumers. The retail distribution lists will be posted on the FSIS website at when it becomes available.

FSIS is concerned that some products may be in consumers’ refrigerators. 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.
