WASHINGTON – The US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on Sept. 17 that Valley International Cold Storage Acquisition LLC, based in Harlingen, Texas, recalled approximately 22,061 lbs of frozen beef because the product contains milk, an allergen, which is not declared on the product label.

The products, which were manufactured on July 22, 2022, are identified on the label as Korean-Style Beef but also contain sausage and pepper ingredients, which could contain milk.

They were shipped to the company’s retail customers across the country. The ingredient issue was brought to the attention of the FSIS by complaints from consumers notifying the agency that the beef-labeled cartons contained chicken products.

The products included in the recall are:

  • 9.25-oz cartons labeled as “Healthy Choice POWER BOWLS Korean-Style Beef” with lot code “5246220320” and a “best if used by” date of 04-18-2023. The products bear establishment number “34622” on the carton. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.           

No illnesses or adverse reactions related to the consumption of the products have been reported, the FSIS said.
