Soy Allergy Alert: Hy-Vee, Inc.
7/26/2017

Eight varieties of Hy-Vee pizzas are recalled from all six Twin Cities Hy-Vee stores

Hy-Vee, Inc. based in West Des Moines, Iowa, is voluntarily recalling eight Hy-Vee brand pizzas that were sold at its six Minneapolis-area stores because they may contain undeclared soy. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The take-and-bake Hy-Vee brand pizzas were distributed at the Twin Cities Hy-Vee stores in New Hope, Oakdale, Lakeville, Brooklyn Park, Eagan and Savage, near the stores’ Italian departments and prepared-meal areas. The Hy-Vee pizzas are packaged in plastic wrapped pizza tins and sold out of refrigerated display cases. They are produced by Hy-Vee’s wholly owned subsidiary D & D Foods, Inc., based in Omaha, Nebraska.

Below is the product description, size and UPC number that can be found on the label of each Hy-Vee pizza that is being recalled.

To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with these products.

The recall was initiated after a U.S. Department of Agriculture inspection at D & D Foods uncovered the dough softener used in the pizza crusts contained soy and it was not identified on the product labels’ list of allergens. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a product label filing error.

Customers who purchased these varieties of Hy-Vee pizza at any of the six Hy-Vee stores in the Twin Cities should dispose of them or return them to their local Hy-Vee store for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact Hy-Vee Customer Care representatives 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 800-772-4098 or CustomerCare@hy-vee.com.

The recalled Fat Cat Purry-Purry Sauce Hot Sauce comes in a 5 ounce glass bottle; the necks of the affected bottles display the lot number FCPPMAY092019 on them. 

The recall was initiated after an ingredient supplier, Woodland Foods of Chicago, IL, notified Fat Cat Gourmet Foods via letter that there was a possible peanut contamination in the peri-peri peppers used in their product.

Mylan Expands EpiPen Recall to the United States
4/1/2017

Update: 4/3/2017: Mylan will continue to update this page with more information. 

3/31/2017: Mylan N.V. (NASDAQ, TASE: MYL) today announced that Meridian Medical Technologies, a Pfizer company and Mylan's manufacturing partner for EpiPen® Auto-Injector, has expanded a voluntary recall of select lots of EpiPen (epinephrine injection, USP) and EpiPen Jr® (epinephrine injection, USP) Auto-Injectors to now include additional lots distributed in the U.S. and other markets in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This recall is being conducted as a result of the receipt of two previously disclosed reports outside of the U.S. of failure to activate the device due to a potential defect in a supplier component. The potential defect could make the device difficult to activate in an emergency (failure to activate or increased force needed to activate) and have significant health consequences for a patient experiencing a life-threatening allergic reaction (anaphylaxis). Both reports are related to the single lot that was previously recalled. The incidence of the defect is extremely rare and testing and analysis across the potentially impacted lots has not identified any units with a defect. However, the recall is being expanded to include additional lots as a precautionary measure out of an abundance of caution.

The recalled product was manufactured by Meridian Medical Technologies, a Pfizer company, and distributed by Mylan Specialty between December 2015 and July 2016. The expanded voluntary recall is being initiated in the U.S. and also will extend to additional markets in Europe, Asia, North and South America.

The recall impacts the 0.3 mg and 0.15 mg strengths of EpiPen Auto-Injector. None of the recalled lots include the authorized generic for EpiPen Auto-Injector, which is also manufactured by Meridian Medical Technologies.

12/9/2016

Taylor Farms Northwest, LLC, a Kent, Wash. establishment, is recalling approximately 79 pounds of meatloaf products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The Turkey Meatloaf with Kale contains milk and fish (anchovies), known allergens which are not declared on the product label.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 34834” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Oregon and Washington.    

The problem was discovered when a broker notified the firm. The firm investigated and found that the ingredient label on the bottom of the packages was incorrect, due to improper placement.

The Turkey Meatloaf with Kale products incorrectly display the ingredients statement for the Homestyle Meatloaf.  The Turkey Meatloaf with Kale products contain the allergens milk and anchovies, which are not declared because the Homestyle Meatloaf does not contain those ingredients and the ingredients statement, therefore, does not declare milk or anchovies.

Conversely, the Homestyle Meatloaf products incorrectly display the ingredients statement for the Turkey Meatloaf with Kale. Although all of the allergen ingredients in the Homestyle Meatloaf are declared on the bottom label, the Homestyle Meatloaf product is a beef and pork product, and beef and pork are not included in the ingredients statement on the bottom of the package.

Kraft Heinz Company, a Fullerton, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 959 pounds of ready-to-eat “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” packaged lunch products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product contains wheat and soy, known allergens, which are not declared on the product label. 

The ready-to-eat meat and cheese packaged lunch items were produced on September 21, 2016. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF only)]

3.4-oz. boxes containing four-compartment plastic trays of “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers,” with a “USE BY” date of 25 DEC 2016 and production times ranging from 9:13 to 10:00 stamped on the side of the plastic container.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 537K” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Utah and California.

The problem was discovered on October 6, 2016, when the firm received a consumer complaint. There were no illnesses associated with the complaint.

The establishment determined that the “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” products were incorrectly labeled with the back label for a “Nacho Lunchable” product. The back label contains the product ingredient statements and as such, the “Lunchables Ham and American Cracker Stackers” products that were mislabeled do not declare wheat and soy on the label.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of this product. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased this product are urged not to consume it. This product should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

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.

Multiple Allergy Alert: Fresh Express Incorporated
10/3/2016

Fresh Express Incorporated is voluntarily conducting a precautionary recall of 480 cases of 11 oz. Fresh Express American Salad with a Product Code of G264A12A and Use-By Date of October 5, due to possible exposure to undeclared allergens (egg, milk, wheat, anchovy). Fresh Express representatives are coordinating with retail stores to ensure removal of the recalled product from store shelves where distributed in primarily southern states.

The recall is necessitated by the possible mistaken inclusion of a small number of Caesar Salad condiment packets with undeclared allergens in a limited quantity of American Salads.

In order to safeguard the health and wellbeing of consumers, Fresh Express is voluntarily recalling all product that could possibly contain the incorrect condiment packet during this isolated incident. In some individuals the consumption of an undisclosed allergen could be life-threatening.

Fresh Express takes all matters of food safety very seriously, including the issue of allergens.

Fresh Express is coordinating closely with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is conducting a full investigation into this isolated event.

Milk Allergy Alert: WFSP Foods LLC
8/30/2016

WFSP Foods LLC, a Decatur, Ala. establishment, is recalling approximately 18,672 pounds of pork and chicken sausage products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. The products contain milk, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.

The ready-to-eat sausage items were produced on June 7, 2016. The following product is subject to recall:

13.5-oz. packages containing “Land O’ Frost Simply Savory Bacon & Cheddar Smoked Sausage” with a “BEST BY: DEC. 04 2016” and packaging date of 06/07/16.

The product subject to recall bears establishment number “EST. 45411” printed on the packaging. This item was shipped to retail locations nationwide.

The problem was discovered in a retail store by a company representative and immediately reported to FSIS. The product has the correct label on the front of the package, which identifies that the product contains cheese. However, the label in the back fails to include cheddar cheese as an ingredient – the source of milk. As a result, milk is not included in the ingredients statement or in the “Contains” allergen declaration.

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 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 will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

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.

The ready-to-eat salads with chili-seasoned chicken items were produced on various dates between May 11, 2016 and June 29, 2016. The following products are subject to recall:

11-oz. plastic clam shell containers with “TRADER JOSE’S MEXICALI INSPIRED SALAD WITH CHILI SEASONED CHICKEN” with “BEST BY” dates 05/18/16 – 07/03/16.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. P-45781” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Southern Virginia.

The problem was discovered by a plant quality assurance technician during a routine check of ingredients. The salads have the correct label on the top of the package, but exhibit an incorrect back label that does not include soy sauce as an ingredient; the source of the wheat. As a result, wheat is not sub-listed in the ingredients statement or in the “Contains” allergen declaration.

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 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.

Consumers with questions about the recall can call GHSE LLC at (888) 449-9386. Media with questions about the recall can contact Greg Miklovic, GHSE LLC/Quality & Food Safety Director, at (916) 205-8474.
