WASHINGTON, Jan. 16, 2015 – Kabob’s Acquisition Inc., a Lake City, Ga. establishment, is recalling approximately 869 pounds of beef and chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products may contain peanuts, known allergens, which are not declared on the label.

The following items, produced on various dates from November 13, 2014 to January 15, 2015, are subject to recall: [Labels (PDF Only)]

  • Cases containing shrink wrapped plastic trays of 100  “Kabob’s Chipotle Steak Churrasco 1053”
  • Cases containing shrink wrapped plastic trays of 100 “Kabob’s Latin Inspired Chicken and Cheese in Pastry 7172”
  • Cases containing shrink wrapped plastic trays of 100 “Kabob’s White Chicken Meat for Tandoori (Made in USA) 2415”
  • Cases containing shrink wrapped plastic trays of 100 “Kabob’s Beef Pastelitos 7159”

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 6640” or “P-6640” inside the USDA mark of inspection, and were shipped to distribution centers in Florida, Georgia, Maryland, New York, Oklahoma, and Texas for shipment to catering firms.                                 

The problem was discovered when the company’s ingredient supplier informed them that the ground cumin spice, used to produce the products, may have been contaminated with peanut residue.

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness 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.
