Jolly Good Meat Pork Meat Pie Recall [US]

United States FlagUS/Washington: Jolly Good Meat Products recalls approximately 1,471 pounds of Pork Meat Pie Products due to undeclared milk, a known allergen. USDA: http://ht.ly/kX1Ql

Direct link: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/News_&_Events/Recall_035_2013_Release/index.asp

Additional information:
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following products are subject to recall:

  • 7-oz. packages of “Jolly Good Melton Mowbray Brand Pie” bearing the establishment number of “Est. 6216” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The packages contain two Pork Pies. The products were produced on various dates from Nov. 8, 2012 through April 24, 2013.

About Milk Allergies:
For some people, milk (and milk products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, milk products may not “look” or “sound” like milk. Some examples of foods with milk proteins include artificial butter or cheese flavor; casein or caseinates; curds; ghee; hydrolysates; lactalbumin and lactalbumin phosphate; lactose, lactoglobulin, lactoferrin and lactulose; and finally, rennet (originally, ground calves’ stomach but more often now, by-products of genetically engineered bacteria, mold or yeast).

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to milk or milk ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call-9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
