WASHINGTON, Jan. 17, 2014 – European Meat Products Inc., a Lakewood, Colo., establishment, is recalling approximately 130,000 pounds of fresh and ready-to-eat beef and pork products because of misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products contain wheat, a known allergen which is not declared on the labels.

 

The products subject to recall include:

  • 16 oz. - vacuum pack plastic bags of  “Bo Vien, Huong Duyen – Cooked Beef Meat Balls”
  • 100 oz. - vacuum pack plastic bags of  “Bo Vien, Huong Duyen – Cooked Beef Meat Balls”
  • 16 oz. – vacuum pack plastic bags of “Cha Chien, Huong Duyen – Pork Meat Roll Browned in Soy Bean Oil”
  • 16 oz. - plastic tubs of  “Moc TUOi, Huong Duyen– Fresh Pork Paste”
  • 16 oz. - vacuum pack plastic bags of “Gio-Lua, Huong Duyen – Pork Meat Roll”
  • 32 oz. - vacuum pack plastic bags of “Gio-Lua, Huong Duyen – Pork Meat Roll”

The products bear the establishment number “EST. 7725” inside the USDA Mark of Inspection. The recalled products were produced prior to January 17, 2014.  The products were shipped to distributors, restaurants and retail establishments in California, Colorado, and Illinois.   

 

The problem was discovered by FSIS during a routine food safety assessment label review. The problem occurred due to a change in ingredient formulation without a corresponding change in the finished product label. 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.
