Kent company recalls 79 pounds of mislabeled meatloaf

The two recalled products contain known allergens which are not declared on the product label.

From a press release:

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 Homestyle Meatloaf contains beef and pork, which are not declared on the label.

The Turkey Meatloaf with Kale and Homestyle Meatloaf items were produced on Dec. 4, 2016. The following products are subject to recall:

• 20 units of 16-oz. aluminum loaf pans with plastic lids containing 1 piece of “Turkey Meatloaf with Kale” with a sell by date of 12/10/2016.

• 59 units of 16-oz. aluminum loaf pans with plastic lids containing 1 pieces of “Homestyle Meatloaf” with a sell by date of 12/10/2016.

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 firm observed that although the correct principal display panel labels were attached to the top of the packages; the wrong ingredients statement label was attached to the bottom of the packages.

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.

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 theircustomers 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.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact Kerri Tate, their Quality Manager of Taylor Farms Northwest, LLC at 253-548-5174.
