New York Firm Recalls Pork Egg Rolls Due To Misbranding and Undeclared Allergens
WASHINGTON, June 22, 2011 - Chef One, Corp., a Brooklyn, N.Y., establishment is recalling approximately 36 pounds of pork egg rolls because the product is misbranded and contains undeclared allergens. The product was prepared using soy, milk and egg, known allergens which were not declared on the label, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
The following product is subject to recall:
- 4 cases of 9 lb. boxes of "Chef One Pork Egg Rolls," containing 50 egg rolls per box.
The products subject to recall contain establishment number "EST. 21424" inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label. An identifying packaging code "261505103" can be found on each box. The product was produced on May 2, 2011, and shipped to a distribution center in Brooklyn, NY.
The problem was discovered by in-plant FSIS inspection personnel during a routine label review. The company changed ingredient suppliers, and the label was not changed to reflect the new ingredients. 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.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and to ensure that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact the company's President, Alan Butt, at (718) 368-6868.
