by Meat&Poultry Staff
WASHINGTON – Cloverdale Foods Co., in Mandan, ND, recalled approximately 2,664 lbs. of beef franks because the products were formulated with milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service reported.
The company discovered the problem during an internal label review. The problem occurred when the new label included an incorrect ingredient statement. Non-fat dry milk is used in the product, but was not declared on the label. Products subject to the recall include:
• 16-oz. packages of Cloverdale Meats “Seattle Mariners Beef Franks.”
• 12-lb. cases containing 12 packages of individual 16-oz. packages of Cloverdale Meats “Seattle Mariners Beef Franks.”
The products were produced on Nov. 23 and Dec. 13, 2013, with use-by dates of Feb. 21 and March 13, 2014 respectively. The franks bear the package code Use by 2-21-14 or Use by 3-13-14 and the establishment number “Est. 7603” inside the mark of inspection. Cloverdale Foods sold franks to retail establishments in Montana, North Dakota and Washington State.
