New Jersey Firm Recalls Canned Meatball Products Due To Undeclared Allergen
WASHINGTON, August 3, 2010 - Ugo. DiLullo & Sons, a Westville, N.J., establishment, is recalling approximately 147,667 pounds of canned meatball products because they contain an allergen, egg, which is not declared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The product subject to recall includes:
- 6 lb., 10 oz cans of "U. DILULLO'S DELUXE MEATBALLS IN SAUCE". Each package bears the establishment number "Est. 1153" inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The canned meatball products were produced on various dates between May 1, 2009, and August 2, 2010, and were distributed to institutions, including food banks, in Maryland, New Jersey and New York.
The problem was discovered by FSIS during a routine inspection. FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an allergic reaction should contact a physician.
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.
