Holiday Foods, a Hollywood, Fla. establishment, is recalling approximately 1,819 pounds of beef, chicken and pork products due to misbranding and an undeclared allergen, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products may contain peanuts, a known allergen, which are not declared on the product label.
The following products are subject to recall:
- 5 corrugated brown packages with case code YX43242; weighing 4.4-lbs each; and containing 100 pieces of “Peruvian Brand Marinated Beef for Brochett on a Specialty Bamboo Skewer 4801804”
- 50 corrugated brown packages with case code YX42172; weighing 5-lbs each; and containing 100 pieces of “Chicken Taquitos: Chicken Breast w/Rib Meat, Salsa and Cheese Wrapped in a Tortilla 4801273”
- 55 corrugated brown packages with case codes YX43023 and YX43423; weighing 4.4-lbs each; and containing 100 pieces of “Mango Chutney Chicken Samosa 4802693”
- 232 corrugated brown packages with case codes YX43283, YX42753 and YX42613; weighing 5.625-lbs each; and containing 100 pieces of “Beef (Tenderloin & Short Rib) and Manchego Cheese Empanada 4802622”
The products subject to recall, which all bear the establishment number “EST. 18074” inside the USDA mark of inspection, were produced between August 5 and December 8, 2014. These items were shipped to wholesale distributors in Illinois, Indiana, Florida, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Texas.
The problem was discovered when Holiday Foods was notified by its spice supplier that the cumin in a spice mix used to formulate the products may have been contaminated with peanuts. Holiday Foods then informed FSIS of the issue.
