WASHINGTON – No reports of illness have been made following two recalls involving beef, pork and chicken products, the Food Safety Inspection Service of the US Department of Agriculture reported.
Los Angeles-based Royal Frozen Food is recalling about 3,821 lbs. of beef and chicken blintzes because milk, a known allergen, was not declared on the product labels, FSIS said. A label review by FSIS personnel uncovered the problem.

The beef and chicken blintzes were produced on various dates before April 16. Products subject to the recall bear the establishment number “Est. 20585 or P-20585” inside the USDA mark of inspection. FSIS said the items were shipped to retail stores and markets in California and Nevada.

Affected products include:

• 20-oz. plastic trays containing ten pieces of “Royal Frozen Food, BLINTZES Blintzes with BEEF” with bar code “6 0723830019 5.”
