Over 22,000 Pounds of Meat Recalled Due to Undeclared Allergen
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced a recall for Carne Guisada due to an undeclared allergen, according to recent news sources.
About 22,100 pounds of meat are affected by this recall. The manufacturer is Supreme Meat Purveyors, based in San Antonio, Texas. The product was discovered by the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service during a routine survey of the products. The allergen is soy.
Two and five pound bags are being recalled, with case codes of either 600100, 71087/506004, or 500233. The “beef base” listed under the ingredients was proven to contain soy. Those who have sensitivities to that product could get sick from consuming it.
No reports of illness have been made to the company of the Food Safety and Inspection Service. The products were sent to both Louisiana and Texas.
As a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, I have seen food recalls like this one and know that, with as much testing goes into food products before manufacturers send them to market, mistakes can still be made. Although the product liability lawyer at our law firm does not handle these type of cases there are food recall lawyers out there that can help your or a loved one if you have been affected by a recall such as this one.
