Beef ravioli recalled because of incorrect labels
The Wornick Company is recalling approximately 61,538 pounds of beef ravioli products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced that the product may contain milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The beef wonton ravioli items were produced on February 22 and March 28 of this year. The following products are subject to recall:
14.5-oz. plastic bowl packages containing “Sam’s Choice ASIAN STYLE BEEF WONTON Ravioli,” with “BEST IF USED BY” dates of Feb. 22, 2018 and Mar. 28, 2018. The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 19076” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
The problem was discovered when the company received notification from an ingredient supplier that the beef ravioli the company received and used in the recalled products potentially contained undeclared milk. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the 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.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Paul Morris, The Wornick Company, at 513-552-7485.
