WASHINGTON – The US Dept. of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced May 16 that Kent Quality Foods Inc, a Grand Rapids, Michigan, establishment, is recalling approximately 308,430 lbs. of ready-to-eat hot dog and sausage products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. The products contain soy, an allergen that is not declared on the product label.

Kent Quality Foods officials noticed the label for the spice mixture used in the production of one of their Beef Polish Sausage products contained hydrolyzed soy protein as an ingredient. However, the Beef Polish Sausage does not list the soy ingredient on the finish product label. The problem was discovered on May 12, 2018, by Kent during product inventory activities.

The ready-to-eat hot dog and sausage items were produced on various dates between Sept. 9, 2017, and April 29, 2018. The complete list of products can be found here.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 5694” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distribution and restaurant locations nationwide.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
