(WASHINGTON, Nov. 7, 2015) – Cloverdale Foods Company, a Mandan, ND, establishment, is recalling approximately 5,208 pounds of beef and pork jalapeño cheddar bratwurst product due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The product was incorrectly labeled as beef frankfurters and contains milk, a known allergen which is not declared on the product label.
The beef and pork bratwurst product was produced on Sept. 21, 2015, and Oct. 2, 2015. The following product is subject to recall:
10 oz. packages labeled as “TETON WATERS RANCH UNCURED BEEF FRANKFURTERS” with the use by dates of “12/5/15” and “12/16/15”
The product subject to recall bears establishment number “EST. 7603” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to three distributors and then distributed nationwide.
The problem was discovered by a consignee of Cloverdale Foods Company during a store audit. The company then notified FSIS.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
