Minnesota Firm Recalls Honey Cured Turkey Stick Products Due To Mislabeling and an Undeclared Allergen
WASHINGTON, March 11, 2011 - Monogram Meat Snacks, LLC, a Chandler, Minn., establishment is recalling approximately 5,125 pounds of Hannah's Honey Cured Turkey Sticks because they contain an undeclared allergen, wheat, which is not declared on the label. Wheat is a known allergen.
The products subject to recall include:
- 100 count cases containing 1-oz. packages of "HANNAH'S HONEY CURED TURKEY STICK." These products have an identifying case code of "706179" and the following package codes (use by/sell by dates): 09/09/11 and 10/01/11.
- 560 count cases containing 1-oz. packages of "HANNAH'S HONEY CURED TURKEY STICK." These products have an identifying case code of "330074" and the package code (use by/sell by date) of 10/01/11.
Each package bears the establishment number "P-15727" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The products were packaged on Dec. 13, 2010 through March 4, 2011, and shipped, including via internet sales, to institutions (prisons and one homeless shelter) in Calif., Colo., Ill., Mo., and Ohio.
The problem was discovered by the plant, and occurred because of a change in ingredients at the establishment. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
