WASHINGTON, Jan. 8, 2015 – The Daniel Weaver Company, a Lebanon, PA establishment, is recalling approximately 7,092 pounds of Halal Beef products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains peanuts, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.
The Halal Beef Soujouk products were produced between November 13 and December 3, 2014. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels]
- 16-oz. hoops of “YöRÜK BRAND HALAL BEEF SOUJOUK DRIED BEEF SAUSAGE.”
- 16-oz. links of “YöRÜK BRAND HALAL BEEF PARMAK SOUJOUK DRIED BEEF SAUSAGE.”
The products subject to recall bear the establishment number “EST. 669” and were shipped to a distribution location in New Jersey.
The problem was discovered when The Daniel Weaver Company was notified by its spice supplier that the cumin in a spice mix used to formulate the sausage may have been contaminated with peanut allergens.
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 theircustomers 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.
