Minnesota Company Recalls Burger Meat
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A southwestern, Minn., food company is recalling more than 400 pounds of its steakhouse burger meat because of misbranding and allergens, officials said.
J&B Group out of Pipestone said it’s recalling 456 pounds of its steakhouse burger. The product contains a seasoning mix with hydrolyzed soy and wheat proteins, which are known allergens, not declared on the label. J&B Group is recalling 27-ounce packages that contain six 4.5 ounce “No Name, Roasted Peppers, Onions and Mozzarella Cheese Steakhouse Burgers” with a Julian date of March 3, 2012.
They are also recalling shipping cases of “Beef Steakburger with Steakhouse Seasoning.”
The products were packaged on Feb. 3 and were distributed to retail outlets in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Some packages that were supposed to be the roasted peppers, onions and mozzarella cheese steakhouse burgers were packed incorrectly and instead contained the steakhouse burger. Officials said they have not received any reports of adverse reactions after consuming the incorrectly labeled product. Anyone who is concerned that they might have a reaction should contact a health care provider.
Anyone with questions about the recall should call the company’s Consumer Relations department at (888) 387-1152.
