Puritan Foods Co., Inc., a Boston, Mass., establishment, is recalling approximately 2,476 pounds of raw boneless turkey breasts due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen. The product contains milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The following product is subject to recall:
Raw Boneless Turkey Breasts (various weights) with pack dates of June 11 and July 18, 2014 The product was produced on June 11, 2014, and July 18, 2014, and bears the establishment number “P-5933” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The product was distributed to a local distributor, which sold the product to hotels, restaurants and institutions in the New England area.
FSIS personnel discovered the problem while checking product labels. The source materials typically used by the firm do not contain milk. On the two dates in question, the source materials used declared they were “butter basted,” which was not carried over to the finished product label. Milk is a sub-ingredient in butter and must be noted on the label.
FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to ensure 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.
Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact Christopher Mendez at (617) 596-4917.
