Nevada Firm Recalls Lasagna Product Due to Misbranding and an Undeclared Allergen
WASHINGTON, May 22, 2012 - West Best Foods, Inc., a Las Vegas, Nev. establishment, is recalling approximately 13,776 pounds of lasagna products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen. The product contains soy, which is an allergen that is not declared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The products subject to recall are:
- 24-lb cases of "WEST BEST FOODS INC LASAGNA WITH MEAT SAUCE."
- 24-lb cases of "WEST BEST FOODS INC DELUXE BEEF LASAGNA."
The products bear the establishment number "EST. 6080" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced between April 13, 2012, and May 21, 2012, and were distributed to hotels and one distributor in Las Vegas, Nev.
The problem was discovered during a routine food safety assessment and may have occurred as a result of a change in an ingredient formulation used in the products. FSIS and the company have not received reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
Consumers and reporters with questions about the recall should contact the company's Plant Manager, Gabriel Campisi, at (702) 367-0662.
