The problem was discovered during an on-going FSIS investigation at the establishment following a complaint to the agency. The major public health concerns include listing hydrolyzed plant protein in the ingredient statement of the beef bologna and beef mortadella, but not specifying that soy, an allergen, is the source of that protein. Also, the beef mortadella products did not declare pistachio nut, an allergen, on individual package ingredient statements, although some cases of the product display a sticker stating “Pistachio” was in the product. FSIS also found that beef salami and beef bologna products contained poultry ingredients and a sausage product tested positive for Red Dye #40, which is not declared on product labels. Additionally, raw beef trim, designated for cooking only, was used in raw non-intact finished products.

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 and the company are concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers' freezers.

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.

Kellogg Company (NYSE: K) today announced that it is voluntarily recalling certain varieties and limited dates of production of Mother’s®, Keebler®, Kellogg’s® Special K® brownies, Murray® and Famous Amos® snacks and cookies because they may contain undeclared peanut residue. Kellogg initiated the recall after its supplier, Grain Craft, recalled wheat flour that has the potential to contain low levels of peanut residue.

While consumers with severe peanut allergies should avoid the recalled products, the FDA has stated that the amount of peanut exposure from the flour is low and not expected to cause adverse health effects in the vast majority of peanut allergic consumers. The company has received no reports of related illness to date and is taking this action out of an abundance of caution.

The recall is being conducted because during the January 20, 2016 – February 3, 2016 timeframe, BJ's mistakenly received Citterio Mortadella containing pistachios. BJ's deli labels did not list pistachios as an ingredient. Since the Mortadella with pistachios may have been sliced on equipment where other deli meats were sliced, BJ's is conducting a voluntary recall of all deli meats purchased during the dates shown above. Deli cheeses are sliced on separate equipment and, as such, are not subject to this voluntary recall.

BJ's is coordinating closely with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and has taken precautionary steps, including removing all potentially-impacted products from its delis and disinfecting the deli equipment and surfaces.

Members that purchased the recalled products and have an allergy to pistachio nuts, are asked to please throw away the Citterio Mortadella and any other deli meats purchased during January 20, 2016 – February 3, 2016. If you do not have an allergy to pistachio nuts, then you do not need to throw out the Citterio Mordatella or other deli meats as they are safe to eat.

Members can visit their local BJ's with their receipt for a refund. If a Member does not have their receipt, a BJ's Team Member at their local Club can look it up.
