GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.– Steinhouwer’s Frozen Foods, a Grand Rapids, Mich. retailer, is recalling Pigs in the Blanket products.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Friday, Dec. 21, that approximately 6,039 pounds of the product is being recalled due to “misbranding” and an undeclared milk allergen, which was not revealed on the label.
The products being recalled are the 13.5 pound cases. Each case contains 12 individual, 18 ounce packages of “Steinhouwer’s Pigs in the Blanket.” The products being recalled have use by dates of Sept, 27, 2013, Oct. 25, 2013 and Dec. 13, 2013.
Also being recalled are the 5 pound bulk packs. These packages are labeled as “FOR INSTITUTIONAL USE ONLY.” They have a use by date of Oct. 25, 2013.
Each case and package has the establishment number, EST. 6814 located inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The food was distributed for institutional use and to retail stores in Michigan.
The FSIS found the problem during a routine label review. They noticed that the nonfat milk was listed as an ingredient in the mi used to make the dough for this product, but it was not listed on the final label.
No reports of illness have been reported.
Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact their doctor.
