US/Washington: Fratelli Beretta USA recalls an estimated 468 pounds of Mortadella Meat due to suspected mislabeling and consequential undeclared Pistachio Nuts, a known allergen, source of dietary intolerance and possible trigger of Anaphylaxis, a serious and potential fatal situation, requiring immediate medical intervention. FDA: http://ht.ly/ti39309mkGr
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Mortadella Meat are subject to this recall:
- 3-ounce plastic packages containing slices of Deli Thin Dietz & Watson Mortadella Meat with lot number LO23633800 and best-by date April 2, 2017.
Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Mortadella can be found on the Web site above.
==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.
According to the USDA, the product subject to recall bears establishment number “EST. 7543B” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a distributor in Pennsylvania and further distributed to retail and distribution centers in Arizona, California, Florida, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Texas.
The problem was discovered February 17, 2017 by the Dietz & Watson distributor who observed Pistachio Nuts through the clear product packaging in a case of products labeled as Deli Thin Dietz & Watson Mortadella products and notified the establishment. The Deli Thin Dietz & Watson Mortadella products are not made with Pistachio Nuts and therefore, do not declare the Pistachio Nut ingredient on the label.
==> For information about Nut Allergy (including Peanuts and Tree Nuts), please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab at the top of this page.
If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Mortadella Meat and could be allergic to its Pistachio Nut 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 directly nor use them as an ingredient in another dish or preparation. 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 neither small children nor household pets can access the suspect food.
