The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 40245 or P-40245” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to food service, distributors, and retail locations in Florida.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
