WASHINGTON – The US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has announced that McKinney, Texas-based Blount Fine Foods Corp. is recalling approximately 8,685 lbs. of Beef Chile Colorado frozen meals due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen. The products are labeled Beef Chile Colorado, but the packages actually contain cheese enchiladas. The cheese enchiladas use milk, a known allergen, which is not declared of the product label.
The frozen Beef Chile Colorado products were produced on Nov. 23, 2016. The following products are subject to recall:
• 10-oz retail cartons containing “SAFFRON ROAD BEEF CHILE COLORADO WITH MESQUITE BLACK BEANS & GARLIC RICE” with “Best By” dates of “05/23/18 AP.”
The products subject to recall do not bear an establishment number on the packaging because the company was producing a US Food and Drug Administration product. These items were shipped to distribution centers located in Pennsylvania and Texas.
A consumer complaint alerted the firm of the problem.
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.
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.
