==> For information about Nut Allergy (including Peanuts and Tree Nuts) or Soy Allergy, please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab at the top of this page.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession these recalled Meat and Poultry and could be allergic to their Nut and/or Soy ingredients, have a close family member who is allergic or has previously experienced Anaphylaxis or are unsure of your allergy status, please do not consume them. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.

The problem was discovered during an on-going US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) investigation at the establishment following a complaint to the agency. The major public health concerns include listing hydrolyzed plant protein in the ingredient statement of the Beef Bologna and Beef Mortadella, but not specifying that soy, an allergen, is the source of that protein.

Also, the Beef Mortadella products did not declare Pistachio Nut, an allergen, on individual package ingredient statements, although some cases of the product display a sticker stating “Pistachio” was in the product. FSIS also found that Beef Salami and Beef Bologna Products contained Poultry ingredients and a Sausage product tested positive for Red Dye #40, which is not declared on product labels. Additionally, raw Beef Trim, designated for cooking only, was used in raw non-intact finished products.

If you have any questions about this recall notification, please contact Medhat Mechaeil, company owner, at 1-732-238-0428.
