Nearly 13K Pounds of Beef and Chicken Products Recalled Due to Misbranding, Undeclared Allergens



Almost 13,000 pounds of diced chicken and beef products are being recalled due to brand errors and undeclared allergens, the Food Inspection and Safety Service (FSIS) of the United States Department of Agriculture announced on Sunday.

Products related to Fieldsource Food Systems, Inc., based in Brea, California, contain wheat, which is not listed on the product labels, said FSIS.

Raw, marinated and diced meat and poultry products were produced from June 9 to July 10, 2019, FSIS said.

The following products were identified as the subjects of the recall:

  • 20 pounds boxes containing four 5 lb. plastic bags. unmarked with "FIELDSOURCE Food Systems, Inc. NORTHGATE MARKET MARINATED BEEF CUBES" and lot codes 061019 through 071019 represented on the label.
  • 20 pound boxes containing four unmarked 5-pound plastic bags with "FIELDSOURCE Food Systems, Inc. NORTHGATE MARKET MARINE CROPS" and lot codes 061019 through 071019 represented on the label.

In addition, the beef products subject to recall have the establishment number "EST 45141" and the chicken products have the establishment number "P-45141" within the USDA mark of inspection, said FSIS.

FSIS said there were no confirmed reports of reactions due to consumption of the products mentioned above, but shared concerns about the products that are stored in refrigerators and behind the delicatessen counter in grocery stores.

The withdrawal is a Class II recall, which means there is a remote possibility of adverse health consequences from the use of the product.
