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

  • 20 units of 16-ounce (one pound) aluminum loaf pans with plastic lids containing one (1) piece of Turkey Meatloaf with Kale with a sell-by date of 12/10/2016
  • 59 units of 16-ounce (one pound) aluminum loaf pans with plastic lids containing one (1) piece of Homestyle Meatloaf with a sell-by date of 12/10/2016

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Meatloaf can be found on the Web site above.

According to the USDA, the Meatloaf subject to recall bears establishment number “EST. 34834” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Oregon and Washington state.

The problem was discovered when a broker notified Taylor Farms Northwest. The firm subsequently investigated and found the ingredient labels on the bottom of the packages was incorrect, due to improper placement.

Taylor Farms Northwest 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” product incorrectly displays the ingredients statement for the “Homestyle Meatloaf” product. The Turkey Meatloaf with Kale products contain the allergens Anchovy Fish and Milk, neither of which are declared because the Homestyle Meatloaf does not contain these ingredients and the ingredients statement, therefore, does not declare Anchovies or Milk.

Conversely, the “Homestyle Meatloaf” product incorrectly displays the ingredients statement for the “Turkey Meatloaf with Kale” product. 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.

==> For information about Fish Allergy, Milk Allergy or Lactose Intolerance, 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 Meatloaf and could be allergic to their Anchovy Fish and/or Milk 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.

==> Never depend on your senses of sight, smell, taste or touch to confirm food poisoning, adulteration or contamination. If in doubt about the safety of any food, return it to your retailer for refund or toss it out in your household garbage, making sure pets and small children can’t access the suspect food.
