Beef ravioli products recalled
The Journal Gazette
The Wornick Co. of Cincinnati has recalled more than 61,000 pounds of beef ravioli products because of misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today.
The product may contain milk, a known allergen that is not declared on the product label, the service said in a statement.
The beef wonton ravioli items were produced on Feb. 22, 2017 and March 28, 2017, the statement said. It said the products subject to recall are 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, the statement said. 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 because of 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.
Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Paul Morris of The Wornick Co. at (513) 552-7485.
