WASHINGTON – Approximately 6,082 lbs. of flap meat distributed by Viz Cattle, Irvine, Calif., is being recalled because of misbranding, the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced. The products do not have ingredients listed on the product label; however the product does not contain undeclared allergens or ingredients of public health concern.
