Fieldsource Food Systems, Inc., a Brea, Calif. establishment, is recalling approximately 12,953 pounds of diced beef and chicken products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. The products contain wheat, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The uncooked, marinated, diced beef and chicken cubes were produced from June 9 through July 10, 2019. The following products are subject to recall:
- 20-lb. boxes containing four unmarked 5 lb. plastic bags with “FIELDSOURCE Food Systems, Inc. NORTHGATE MARKET MARINATED BEEF CUBES” and lot codes 061019 through 071019 represented on the label.
- 20-lb. boxes containing four unmarked 5 lb. plastic bags with “FIELDSOURCE Food Systems, Inc. NORTHGATE MARKET MARINATED CHICKEN CUBES” and lot codes 061019 through 071019 represented on the label.
The beef products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 45141” and the chicken products bear establishment number “P-45141” inside the USDA marks of inspection. These items were shipped to grocery stores in California and used behind the deli counter. This product is not sold uncooked to consumers.
The problem was discovered during routine label verifications being performed by FSIS.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in refrigerators or freezers behind the deli counter in grocery stores. The delis should not use the products. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
