FSIS was notified of the problem by the establishment on Sept. 15, 2017, after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) tested exported product and discovered milk proteins were present. CIFA tested the product on Aug. 17, 2017. Further investigation by the establishment concluded that they failed to include milk on the label. 

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.  

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
