WASHINGTON, DEC. 15, 2016 – R&R Provision Company Inc., an Easton, Pa. establishment, is recalling approximately 23,040 pounds of breaded veal products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products contain whey and nonfat milk, known allergens which are not declared on the product label.
The breaded veal items were produced from April 14, 2016 through November 17, 2016. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF Only)]
The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 1081” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to restaurants in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and sold at the establishment’s retail store.
The problem was discovered on December 14, 2016 by FSIS Inspection Program Personnel (IPP) while performing routine labeling verification activities. The establishment received a letter from their breading supplier specifying the incorporation of new ingredients listed above but the change was not carried over onto the final product labels.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness 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.
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. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
